An Androsphinx in concrete
For those tens of thousands of commuters who use the Beetham highway, a royal sculpture derived from Egypt is displayed off to the side at Beetham, Port of Spain. This is a modern and smaller version of the Great Sphinx which is a lion with the face of a man. (Androsphinx) Scholars believe that the face of the Great Sphinx may be that of pharaoh Khafra. But here, on the Caribbean island of Trinidad, West Indies, the sculptor’s work is faceless, yet there is a large amount of pride with the mounted Sphinx. A bed of lavender lilies are placed to the front of it.
