Statues : Ancient Statues - Naxian Sphinx

"750-166 BCE Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic Periods"

"Greek mythological Sphinx was a winged monster with a womans head and a lions body. This legendary beast was placed before Thebes from goddess Hera as plague for the city. Her victims, in order to avoid being torn to pieces, were challenged to answer her famous riddle: What creature is two-footed, three-footed and four-footed and weakest of limb when it walks on more than two feet? When Cedipus answered Man, who begins life crawling on all fours and ends life leaning on a cane the Sphinx killed herself. Cedipus gained the throne of Thebes and freeing the city from the monster. The people from the island of Naxos gave the Sphinx to the oracle of Delphi in the sixth century B.C."
