Carving a sphynx
Check capitalisation explanation below.
About this creation
The team 5 Monkeys'
Deus_ is participating in the category of the "ancient alien theory" for the
2011 MOCathalon!




Why is the sphynx shaped as a lion with a human's head? It was a mistery, until now...




Batros captain:
How. Does this, in any way. Resemble. A cat?!

Worker:
Uhh...

Batros captain:
I said build a statue of my cat!!! You're not even close!

Murrit:
(a rather silent meow)




Architect:
I think I can fix that!




Some general shots...










The head...






A village idiot under cover (bad cover) stealing a rock...






The water carrier...






The tent thingie...








Max Stupid eating a fish on his break (if I make another comic he'll probably time travel)...










Why "a sphynx"?

The information here is not 100% confirmed, but as I heard, not only are there many sphynxes, but there are actually multitudes of rocks shaped practicaly all the way to a sphynx (form behind), something about desert winds.
Also, it's far too small to be the Shpynx.

Why lt.gray?
Obviously, making a tan sphynx would be impossible for my personal LEGO collection.

About fish:
fish were food of the rich in ancient Egypt, so why would simple workers eat them?
Because they weren't simple workers. They were respected and admired, as should be workers today, but that's politics. (From fish to politics in six steps! Order today!)

About future plans:
I am capable of making a tropical island, as I see from the tan used for the landscape here. Expect it in april.


Za Celovec! Za Trst! Za Slovenijo!

Quoting Alex M. I'm guessing Max Stupid was the one who broke off the nose later on, right?
Most probably.

Hahahaha... this is a pretty clever entry. I like the sphynx's face and the posing of the water carrier, both are really well-built.

Nice work man, the shapeing on the sphynx's head is great, and the little details like the water porter are great!

Very nice! What's with 'Murrit'? What is his backstory, why is he there and why does he always meows rather silently? Is he a time-traveler? (a 'backstory MOC' would be nice)

I could have made a backstory MOC for him... But he's the reason why Egyptians worshipped cats.
