Minimalist white glyph on black background representing the symbol of Sphinx


The Sphinx, with its human head and lion’s body, symbolizes the merging of human intelligence with animal strength and is often associated with riddles, secrets, and the guarding of sacred spaces. In Greek mythology, the Sphinx posed a famous riddle to passersby, representing a test of wisdom and understanding. In Egyptian culture, it is a protective symbol, guarding the tombs and temples. Therefore, in dreams, the Sphinx may represent a challenge or mystery to be solved, or the need to integrate one’s intellect and strength to overcome obstacles.
