This illustrated volume, written in both English and Arabic, tells the story of the Sphinx from ancient times to the present, focusing particularly on the task - first addressed in the second millennium B.C. - of preserving it. Published to mark the completion of a major modern restoration project, this book is a testimony not only to the skills of the people who built the Sphinx, but also to those who have maintained and renewed it through the ages.
