E02 The Pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza

The Pyramids of Cheops, Chaperon and Mycrinus were reckoned by the Greeks to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. A single pyramid is built with 2.300.000 blocks each weighing an average of two and one-half tons. In the face of such immensity, one cannot help but feel the wonder and awe that so many writers and artists have sought to convey over the centuries. The Cheops Pyramid is especially interesting, since its interior burial chambers are open for inspection by the public. Not far from the Pyramids is the great Sphinx of Giza which dates from the time of Chephren (2620 BC). Hewn from natural yellowish limestone and standing 65 feet high and 187 feet long, this unforgettable statue combines the head of a Pharaoh with a lion’s body.
