Sphinx in the Cemetery

Sphinx by Luna McCarthy

Many people see the pyramid tombs in the Calvario cemetery and wonder why they are there, as the cemetery is located in Guatemala. But a smaller more obscure fact goes unknown…why is the statue of the sphinx a female, rooted in Greek mythology, as opposed to the male sphinx, which is used in Egyptian mythology? It’s a good question, but likely one that will remain unknown…
