The Sphinx Head

Osirion’s largest sphinx carving is found between Shiman-Sekh and the Junaria, staring straight toward the heart of Sothis. Although Keleshites completely chiseled off the gigantic creature’s facial features during the 700 years that marked Osirion’s tenure as a satrapy, the face has since been accurately restored using a combination of stone tell and stone shape spells.

Osiriontologists speculate the face is actually the likeness of the Sky Pharaoh, Menedes I. A hidden door atop the head’s center leads inside a hollow cavity and possibly into the rest of the Sphinx’s body, which is thought to be buried beneath the sands. Prior expeditions into the Sphinx Head yielded no survivors, and it is widely assumed that the air inside is too foul to breathe. Now that Khemet III has opened parts of Osirion to foreign treasure hunters to raise additional funds and rediscover lost pharonic lore, the Sphinx Head has once again drawn the interest of outsiders who can afford both the permit fees and the imminent risk of death.
