This beautiful creature is the Sphinx. Part woman and part lion with the wings of an eagle.
Our Greek Roman Style Sphinx is composed of high quality cold cast resin and hand painted. This is a heavier piece at almost 2 pounds.
Measuring approximately 8 1/4 inches tall 5 inches wide and 5 inches deep.
Having been around since around 9500 BC, the Sphinx has been known in art and literature in the ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Asian cultures. While arguably, the most recognizable Sphinx is located in Egypt – she later transformed in Greco-Roman culture to her most majestic form (as seen in this statue).
This Mythological Beast is said to have been a guardian to the entrance of a great Greek city; only allowing those to enter who could answer her riddles. In modern times, many people will remember the Sphinx in this form from the cult classic movie Neverending Story.
I ordered 2 and use them as bookends. They both arrived quickly and on the same day, they were packaged very well and the detail on them is absolutely gorgeous
