'Wongs'. Now that's a word!!
It means the wrong kind of wings, Maggie.Well, either that or it was a typo which I've now fixed ;-)
They look like wongs to me.
For all I know about Eyptology they could be!
:) I was just searching for 'wongs' :) Great word - I need a bit of Sphinx injected into me at the moment.
The wongs are very hard to spot, Nicola.
It's not the only one, just the most famous.
You're right, Alex.
Was it Cleopatra or a mythical figure?
I don't think it's supposed to represent Cleopatra, Oscar - but I'm no expert.
Great word, isn't it? Sphinx... rolls off the tongue. And what about The Riddle of the Sphinx? :)Susan atTravel, Fiction and Photos
An inscrutable riddle sounds fiendish, Susan.
Then there's that ditty that ends with 'which accounts for the hump on the camel and the sphinx's inscrutable smile'.
Don't know that one, Liz. I suspect I've had a lucky escape.
Thanks so much for commenting!
