The Great Sphinx of Giza is a statue of a reclining lion with a human head that stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile near Cairo.  It is the largest monolith statue in the world, standing 73.5 m (241 ft) long, 6 m (20 ft) wide, and 20 m (65 ft) high.  It is the oldest known monumental sculpture, and is commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians in the 3rd millennium BC.
