Great Sphinx Origins and the Mesopotamian Lion of Ishtar

If you saw my last video about the Ancient Egyptian Festival of Drunkenness, you’ll see that I explained how the Sphinx, in its earliest incarnation, could be the goddess Hathor, in the form of Sekhmet, as described in the Book of the Heavenly Cow.

In this video I explore the origins of lioness goddesses in Ancient Egypt, as I try to see if Sekhmet could be the true origin of the Sphinx, and if not who else it could be?


I've look at Old Kingdom, Early Dynastic and Pre-Dynastic sources as I try and trace the origins of not just the Sphinx, but also the Horus Kings of Egypt, those that unified Egypt and formed the famous dynastic Era.


In doing this, the research takes me to Mesopotamia and Ancient Syria, as a possible origin for what some call 'The Dynastic Race' and the Great Sphinx could have actually been a monument dedicated to the powerful goddess Ishtar/Inanna, whose cult centre was an ancient Sumerian city.


Was the Sphinx the lion of Ishtar/Inanna? Was it originally a lion, or did it always have a human head? In this Ancient Architects special episode, I go in depth to present to you what I believe are the origins of Egypt's most famous ancient monument.
