In 1922, the tomb of The Egyptian king Tutankhamen of the 18th Dynasty was discovered. The funerary objects found in the tomb brought a new light on the art and life of ancient Egypt. The sphinx was depicted in the shape of a lion with the head of pharaoh. It symbolizes the unification of natural and spiritual power.
