While drawing her, I imagined she’s on her way to test out some new riddles, maybe eat a man or two- she’s playing things by ear. The Sphinx is a reoccurring figure in Egyptian and Greek mythologies, with different interpretations between them. The Greek Sphinx has been described with the head and breasts of a woman, the body of a lion, and the wings of a bird. Similar to its Egypitian cousin, the Greek mythological Sphinx is a mischievous trickster with a taste for riddles and dire consequences. - Camilla d'Errico
