As the title suggests, a second colossal Sphinx was actually discovered not too long ago, this time in Pakistan to be precise.
Oftentimes referred to as the Baluchistan Sphinx, this is an especially important discovery mainly because of the fact that it was discovered less than 6,000 kilometers away from the famous Sphinx from Giza, Egypt.
Having been discovered in Pakistan is especially important here as it appears to be even older than the Sphinx from Giza which might point towards it has influenced the construction of the Sphinx, to begin with.
There have been many civilizations that predated the Egyptian one to say the least, but this structure in itself appears to be especially important as it could be the first to have ever even constructed a sphinx statue in the first place.
Although many skeptics believe that it is just a random natural structure that formed by itself since ancient times, you cannot say that it’s not interesting just how similar it really is to the Sphinx from Giza altogether.
We cannot say for sure how old the Giza Sphinx really is, as we don’t have any proof of it dating back to any specific time period, but the Baluchistan Sphinx appears to date back to 12,500 years ago which is definitely enough to say that it’s most likely older than the Giza structure.
The Giza pyramids appear to date back to 4,500 years ago so it definitely appears as though this new sphinx predates the Giza Sphinx, to say the least.
