Natural factors formed a rocky mountain in the village of “Aba Al-Hiran” in the Hail region, in the style of the famous Egyptian monument, the Sphinx.
The researcher in ancient history and astronomy, Mishari Al-Nashmi, explained during his interview with the Saudi Channel, that it is not possible to judge whether this mountain model was man-made or natural, especially since those mountain ranges were exposed to chemical and physical erosion and weathering factors.
He pointed out some differences between the famous Egyptian Sphinx-like stone model, as he explained that the one in Hail points towards the west, while the direction of the Egyptian Sphinx is to the east, confirming that the orientation of the Egyptian Sphinx towards the east has an astronomical significance for ancient Egyptian beliefs. It symbolizes the sign of the Leo, which the universe began on, as these beliefs indicate.
He indicated that he had spotted a number of rock formations that deserve to be studied, noting that the mountain model similar to the Egyptian Sphinx was able to be a major tourist attraction during the last period.
