Original Paragraph The Great Sphinx is an enormous statue in Giza, Egypt. It’s 240 feet long and 66 feet tall and was built around 4,000 years ago. Its name comes from a creature in Greek mythology, but that name is just 2,000 years old. So, we don’t actually know what the statue was originally called. We think the statue’s face represents the pharaoh Khafre, although that is also uncertain. There are a lot of mysteries still surrounding The Great Sphinx.
