Discovery Of A 12,500-Year-Old Giant Sphinx

The Sphinx of Balochistan or also Lion of Balochistan is located in Lesbela, Pakistan, this shape resembles in some details the famous ancient Egyptian Sphinx of Giza.

It was only revealed when 2004, when the road to Makran opened up and people started to pass near it. It features features of the face, jaw, eyes, mouth and nose and this sculpted in perfect proportions.

An archaeological study on this sphinx, is often presented as being a natural formation. But from different angles of view it bears a certain resemblance to the most famous Egyptian Sphinx.

Located in Hingol National Park, the photographs of this lion cause a lot of confusion. Some people cannot believe that it was sculpted and modeled by natural forces. And to others, it may appear to have been carved into the distant past.

To say that the Balochistan Sphinx was sculpted by man is not enough. Details that resemble the Sphinx of Egypt because of the pareidolia, (a psychological phenomenon that shows things that are not there).

However, it is impossible to tell whether or not it is a man-carved monument, just by looking at this rocky shape.

Without a deep archaeological study, we cannot know whether the geological formation is of natural origin, of artificial origin, sculpted by forgotten civilization or simply by meteorological erosion. Opinions are divided.
