Would you comment on uh the idea that there are two Sphinxes and that indeed the um the Sphinxes aren't lions but dogs, because they're known as the guardians of the gate. - Okay now hold on. - I definitely don't think the sphinx is a dog I think that's a mistaken idea connecting the Sphinx to Anubis the Psychopomp the guide of souls. I think the sphinx has always been a lion, I think it was at one point entirely a lion and that it's head was reworked into human form during the historical period by Egyptians Pharaohs but that the body is. The connections of the sphinx to the constellation Leo at the Equinox takes us back to that epoc of 12,500 years ago when the world was going through a turbulent and traumatic change so I have no doubt about the leonine connection. Many ancient artworks show us two sphinxes and it wouldn't surprise me at all if under the sands of the desert a second Sphinx awaits discovery.
