      This model will require more than one sitting to build it. We advise to pause between different stages as you work, especially when you come to gluing. The white glue softens the paper and it may lead to misshapen parts if you do not allow them to dry well before proceeding further with assembling. Click here to watch our paper model building tips.

      The Sphinx and the Egyptian Pyramids at Giza, including the Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure, are among the most famous and enduring symbols of Ancient Egypt.

      Pyramid of Khufu: Also known as the Great Pyramid, it is the largest of the three pyramids at Giza. Constructed for Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) around 2580–2560 BCE, it originally stood at 146.6 meters (481 feet) tall but now measures about 138.8 meters (455 feet) due to the loss of the outer casing stones. The Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. It is estimated that about 2.3 million blocks of stone were used in its construction, with an average weight of 2.5 to 15 tons per block.

      Pyramid of Khafre: Slightly smaller than the Great Pyramid, the Pyramid of Khafre was built for Pharaoh Khafre, Khufu's son, around 2570 BCE. It originally stood at a height of 143.5 meters (471 feet), but now it is about 136.4 meters (448 feet) tall. One of its distinguishing features is the remaining casing stones at the peak, which give an idea of how the original pyramids might have looked.

      The complex also includes the Great Sphinx of Giza, a colossal limestone statue with the body of a lion and the head of a pharaoh, believed to represent Khafre himself. It is approximately 73 meters (240 feet) long, 19 meters (62 feet) wide, and 20 meters (66 feet) high. The exact purpose of the Sphinx remains a subject of debate. It likely had a religious function, possibly connected to sun worship, and may have served as a guardian figure for the Giza Plateau, especially the necropolis and temples. The combination of a lion's body with a human head symbolizes strength and intelligence, aligning with the pharaoh's role as both a leader and protector.

      Pyramid of Menkaure: The smallest of the three main pyramids at Giza, the Pyramid of Menkaure, was built for Pharaoh Menkaure around 2510 BCE. It is significantly smaller than its predecessors, with an original height of 65 meters (213 feet), now reduced to about 61 meters (200 feet). It features a more complex internal structure than the other two pyramids and was constructed using different materials, including granite for the lower casing stones.

      These pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs and are a testament to the ancient Egyptians' architectural skills and their religious beliefs in the afterlife. The precise alignment of the pyramids with celestial bodies and the sheer scale of construction still amaze historians and archaeologists today.
