Seducing, monstrous and deadly, the Sphinx is described in Greek mythology with a woman’s face and bust, a lion’s body, the wings of a falcon and a serpent’s tail. She is a hybrid woman who killed countless men that could not answer her riddle until Oedipus stood before her.

The Sphinx can be seen as the representation of strong and enigmatic femininity, safeguarding the ultimate secrets of knowledge and wisdom, that does not pone riddles, but leads to an existential journey connected to the circle of life.
Sphinxes are guardians of the natural world and its mysteries, who remind humans of their destructive behavior towards it.
