The Sphinx

Some have said that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt represented the Soul (head) trying to escape the body (animal), but I would transpose this and say that the Sphinx can be a symbol of Civilizing the Beast, man evolving from animal to God, activated by the Spirit. "Escape" is not the interpretation here, evolution is. The evolving body is the vehicle for the Spirit all the way to Godhood.
