A sphinx is a mythological creature in the form of a recumbent lion with a human head. The sphinx is present in many ancient cultures including Greece, South East Asia and, most famously, Egypt. There was a European revival of the sphinx around the sixteenth century.

Possibly the most famous sphinx is The Great Sphinx of Giza.
