Whose face is Sphinx?

Whose face is Sphinx? Of course school history know that the Great Sphinx was built in the era of Pharaoh Hafra (Greek Chephren) in the XXV century BC The official version of history even read that the Sphinx's face mimics the face of the pharaoh. However, the discoveries of recent years forced to reconsider the official version of the age of the Sphinx and suggest that he is much older than the expected date ...
Truth is somewhere ... between the legs?
The suggestion that the Sphinx was built in the era of the Old Kingdom under Pharaoh Hafra is now officially established fact. Until recently, few people wondered whether the Sphinx (or rather, his face) is a sculpture of himself Hafr ...

     It all started with the fact that in 1817 the Italian Dzhanbattist Cavil found between the paws of the Sphinx granite stele, the remaining part which said that the young Thutmose, resting in the shadow of the Sphinx, was the revelation that he would become pharaoh in the event that will pave the sand is a gigantic statue. One of the excerpts of the text read: "... That we have it: the bulls ... and all the young vegetables, and the one whom we praise ... ... Half a statue, made in the name of Atum-Hor-em-Aheta ..."

    Translation of those words involved, Thomas Young, one of the most educated men of his time, who, before Jean-Francois Champollion, not without success, attempted to decipher ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. Adding to the already existing "Hough" syllable "pa", Jung was named Pharaoh IV dynasty. But in this case there is a visible mistake Jung: In ancient Egypt, the names of the pharaohs were placed in the text in a special oval frame, called cartouches, so it is unclear as they could at that time to depict the name of this famous Pharaoh as Heffron, not putting it in a cartouche ...

     At the same time, there are certain issues that invariably arise in a more detailed study of this sculptural monolith:

• the construction of the Sphinx has survived a single economic instrument, while the ancient Egyptians regularly conducted detailed documentation of all major events;

• Never use the Chephren pyramid, or at the Sphinx did not find any text that would be referred to its construction, as well as the construction of all three pyramids of Giza.

The Face
As for the individuals concerned Sphinx and Pharaoh Hafr, the result of painstaking research revealed that the person Sphinx has no relation to Hefrenu. For a definitive answer to this question is a group of independent researchers invited in 1993 to Egypt, a famous specialist of the Department of New York Police Frank Domingo, many years engaged in drawing sketch. At the insistence of the American Egyptologist John Anthony West Domingo performed a comparative analysis of the person Sphinx and diorite statue of Khafre.

Comparing with the help of computer graphics these objects, he came to the rather startling conclusion: [i] "After analyzing my drawings, diagrams and measurements, I finally came to the conclusion that coincides with my first impression, namely that the work depicts two different people. The proportions of the frontal projection, and especially the angles and dimensions of facial projections on the kinds of side convinced me that the Sphinx - NOT Hafr ... 1,111,117.

Thus, it appears that Heffron has no relation to the construction of the Sphinx. But if it is not erect Heffron, then who, when and for what? Answers to these questions have been hidden in the dark millennia, and only recently a group of scientists, apparently managed to lift the veil on the mystery of the creation of ancient colossi of Egypt.

Under the name of the Sun
In the early 90-ies on the study of the Sphinx to work at Boston University geology professor Robert Schoch, and already mentioned Egyptologist D. E. West. Their research has very serious objections to the presently accepted dating of the Great Sphinx. Work Shawhan and West is based on a careful study of geology of the Sphinx, and more precisely on the traces of water erosion, manifested in the form of deep grooves and pits. This erosion, as it turned out, caused by heavy rains that poured over the monument after it was already in place. In the arid desert conditions the sand was washed out by rain streams, the probability of this is extremely small.

According to West, and Shawhan, the Sphinx just could not be carved in 2500 BC, since at that time in Egypt was extremely hot and there was virtually no rainfall. According to paleoclimatology precipitation, can cause erosion of rock, the last time were in Egypt in the period between 7000 and 5000 years. BC Therefore, on the basis of these indicators Robert Schoch estimated the age of the Sphinx in about 7-8 thousand years, which, naturally, deny the Egyptologists traditionalist. And while some 300 geological experts in 1992 confirmed the arguments Shawhan, most of the scientific world does not want to accept the overthrow of the official scientific canons.

     The big breakthrough in the study of the Great Sphinx served as a sensational discovery, Robert and Graham Hancock Byuvela, which overturned on its head an established historical chronology. Exploring the complex of pyramids in Giza, they found that the pyramid of Cheops, Chephren and Menkaure imitate on earth the stars the belt of Orion at 10500 BC, and is directly tied beginning the precession cycle, falling on this date with the mythological First Time the supreme god of ancient Egypt Osiris. In addition, in the process of research it became clear that this period is one more important detail: the orientation of the Sphinx in the direction of the constellation Leo, which in 10500 BC just to be on the east. It turns out that the Sphinx at the moment looking at his celestial analogue!

     Studies G. Hancock and R. Byuvela, as well as R. Shawhan and Dzh.E.Uesta called in scientific circles, this commotion. Despite the rather convincing arguments about the insolvency officially established hypotheses on the establishment of the Sphinx in the era of the Old Kingdom, academic scientists stubbornly refuse to accept them. Hancock and Byuvela charged that in their work, they tried to follow the date specified "sleeping prophet" Edgar Cayce, who claimed that under the right paw Sphinx is a secret chamber in which stores all the true history of mankind from the beginning to the first civilizations in Mesopotamia and the Nile Valley.

Be that as it may, the mystery of the Sphinx and the pyramids has been and remains a mystery. In the recent increase in the detection of voids in the mysterious stone array Sphinx, including, and in a place designated by E. Casey. Acoustic sounding once again confirms that many of them artificial origin. What is hidden in those mysterious tunnels? Legacy of Atlantis? Hidden code of humanity? Or the notorious "time capsule"?
