serie Egipto (foto de 1999 escaneada)

Estamos en GIZA, delante de la Esfinge y encontramos a unos hombres maquillandola. :)

LA GRAN ESFINGE se realizó tallando un montículo natural de roca caliza en la meseta de Giza. Tiene una altura de unos veinte metros, midiendo el rostro más de cinco metros. La cabeza podría representar al faraón Kefrén teniendo el cuerpo la forma de un león. En épocas antiguas estaba pintada en vivos colores: rojo el cuerpo y la cara, y el nemes que cubría la cabeza con rayas amarillas y azules. Sus dimensiones aproximadas son: 57 metros de longitud y veinte de altura.(Wikipedia)

We are in Giza, in front of the Sphinx and we find a some men making up her.

The Great Sphinx was made by carving a natural mound of limestone on the plateau of Giza. With a height of about twenty meters, measuring the face over five meters. The head could represent the Pharaoh Khafre,
taking the body the shape of a lion. In ancient times it was painted in bright colors: red body and face, and the nemes that covered his head with yellow and blue stripes. Its approximate dimensions are: 57 meters long and twenty high. (Wikipedia)
