This lavishly illustrated, bilingual English and Arabic volume tells the story of the Sphinx from ancient times to the present, focusing particularly on the task—first addressed in the second millenium BC—of preserving it. Published to mark the completion of a major modern restoration project, the book is an invaluable and fascinating document, a testimony not only to the skills of the people who built the Sphinx, but to those who have maintained and renewed it down the ages.
