Did you know the pharaoh Khufu, who was also known as Cheops, built the Sphinx as a watchdog for his pyramid? In the book “The Story of The World” by Susan Bauer she says Kufu spent over 20 years building the Great Pyramid of Giza. It is the largest of all 35 pyramids, which is still standing today. I wonder why Cheops thought a half man half lion statue made of mud would protect him and his treasures? I believe that Cheops was a narcissist who wanted his riches with him always, even in death.
