Replicated in cast stone, these sphinxes feature a beautiful woman’s head
in place of Pharaoh Khafra, the son of Khufu’s head, as in Giza. Supplied
as individuals or as a pair.

Following the discovery of Tutankhamun in 1922, interest in archaeological
artefacts and the history of Egypt reached fever pitch back in Great

piece of Egypt of their own. In the absence of actual artefacts, Eleanor
Coade’s famous factory manufactured cast stone replicas and stylistic
designs to meet demand.
