About the Sphinx

A sphinx is a mythological creature that is often depicted as having the body of a lion and the head of a human, typically with the face of a woman. In some versions of the myth, the sphinx also has wings.

In Greek mythology, the sphinx was said to have guarded the city of Thebes and posed a riddle to travelers passing by. If they could not answer the riddle correctly, the sphinx would k*** them.

The famous riddle of the sphinx was, “What creature walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs in the evening?” The answer is a human, who crawls on all fours as a baby, walks on two legs as an adult, and uses a cane in old age.
