According to Egyptologist Bassam El Shammaa’s 2007 study, there was a “second sphinx” on the Pyramids Plateau.
El Shammaa said the famous half-lion, the half-man statue was an Egyptian deity constructed close to another Sphinx that has vanished without a trace.
Today, our attention is focused on the most recent attempt to discover the true ancient story of an advanced civilization that left us with great wonders above and below the Giza plateau sands.
Ancient lost city unearthed in Egypt
The earliest reports of a “Secret City” appeared in the World Press in the first week of March 1935. Many more were discovered in July of that year. The Sunday Express carried an article by Edward Armytage. He had just returned from Egypt to England, where he had witnessed the excavation of an ancient Egyptian metropolis thought to date back 4,000 years.
Following then, there was stillness, as if every Egyptologist alive had lost interest in this fantastic underground metropolis. Throughout the years that followed, all of his articles focused on tombs of queens ɑпԀ ɑггᴏⱳѕ. Surprisingly, at one point, such a massive find of an entire underground metropolis dating back at least 4,000 years was ignored entirely.
Denial of previous findings
That was about eighty years ago, and today we are faced with a similar ‘granite block wall,’ in the former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs, Zahi Hawass. They held this post until the Egyptian revolution in 2011, which toppled Hosni Mubarak and ended Hawass’s controversial reign as the supreme head of all antiquities in Egypt.
However, he retains his power – and it is not a little one. Much has been written about the Egyptian ‘Indiana Jones’ (Zahi Hawass), who smiles significantly one moment and goes crimson with rage the next when he is questioned. This aspect of his personality is widely chronicled in the book “Breaking the Mirror of Heaven” by Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman.
However, such attitude does not explain why Zahi Hawass has publicly said that there is nothing beneath the Sphinx, no tunnel, or a single chamber, despite several photographs of him entering the lowering pits of the Sphinx’s head and another in the rear of the body. Should we ignore what we’ve seen several times before and accept such denials without question?
Statements contradict photographic evidence
He appears to have ignored queries concerning underground tunnels underneath the Giza plateau and chambers beneath the Sphinx, claiming that it was impossible to investigate deeper since the rooms were either sealed or filled with water. This might be true. However, in one of the images of a posterior axis descending on the Sphinx’s side, we can see that the ground is parched.
A hole in the Sphinx’s head
Vivant Denon sketched the Sphinx in 1798, although he didn’t replicate it perfectly. He must have known there was a hole in the top of his head since he had sketched the image of a guy being dragged out.
A drawing is hardly evidence, but an aerial shot of the Sphinx taken from a hot air balloon in the 1920s revealed that there is such an opening at the top of its head.
The Sphinx’s head puzzle
According to Tony Bushby in his ” The Secret in The Bible,” a fragmented Sumerian cylinder tells a story that could easily be interpreted as having taken place in Giza.
A new study now points out that the Sphinx’s body was carved from natural stone when there was frequent heavy rain, and this takes us back to the same time that Robert Bauval and Robert Schoch calculated the construction of the Pyramids of the ‘Belt of Orion,’ i.e., about 10,450 BC.
The second Sphinx
The Giza complex (the ancient Egyptian term Gisa meaning “Stone Hewn”) has been sketched since 1665, and some depict two heads ‘peering’ out of the sand, one with female characters, possibly the second Sphinx.
It was an ancient Egyptian custom to enlist two lions, known as Akerw, outside their doorways for divine protection, which would take us the right to a mystery mound near the Sphinx, which Gerry Cannon (Book: The Giza Plateau Secrets and a Second Sphinx Revealed) identified and measured.
According to one source, one would have thought that the Egyptian authorities would have warmly greeted this mysterious, large, covered shape so close to the Sphinx, but Hawass and Mark Lehner didn’t want to hear or pay attention to it.
Gerry had contacted someone at a renowned institute in Cairo who could detect objects under the sand. This person asked the Supreme Council of Antiquities to investigate the mound, but they did not respond. No one else was allowed to explore the specific area of the stack where we believe a Second Sphinx could be unearthed. No doubt they had a reason for this!
Why the denial?
Why would those two Egyptologists be so concerned about the possibility of discovering something that had been lost for centuries? Is it conceivable they don’t want to expose what’s behind that mound? It is illogical to oppose any type of probe or even a simple aerial image being taken, which may lead to the discovery of yet another great wonder of the world, attracting many thousands of more tourists to Egypt.
They don’t even admit to having inspected the mystery mound, and if they had, they would have been the first to admit it. Zahi Hawass appears to have a plan to maintain the conventional view of ancient Egyptian history (not to allow anything to disrupt the path of traditional history), regardless of how many new findings contradict what is now considered to be true.
Gerry Cannon has previously hinted at a timetable for constructing the three great pyramids, as well as the Sphinx, which is many thousands of years older than most of us assume. Based on ancient documents and data he presented, he also identified an undiscovered mound on the Giza plateau, where another sphinx is most likely hidden.
