Description

The Chilstone Sphinx depicts a mythical creature that has the body of a lion and a human head, but there may be confusion between the Egyptian and Greek versions.

In Egypt, the sphinx was generally shown as a man, a benevolent guardian. But this is the Greek version, a merciless woman who, according to Oedipus, would kill and eat anyone who failed to answer her riddle.

This Chilstone representation is highly detailed cast stone with a delightfully modelled head, who would have thought that she could be capable of such cruelty?  

Often flanking the entrances to temples, a pair of sphinxes could very effectively perform the same duty outside your house, especially as you can choose to have right and left looking versions.

Alternatively one sphinx can be used as a highly decorative ornament in the garden.
