The meaning of Sphinx in the past had various meanings. In Ancient Egypt the Sphinx has a meaning of a goddess. But in ancient Greece had inauspicious meaning. In my painting I change the meaning of Sphinx from predator bird to benevolent bird. That it means the city of Thiva will find again her glamor.
