Worldwide Sphinx Sculpture Hunt!
This is a virtual, log anywhere cache.
Locate a sculpture, building, or anything that resembles the famous Egyptian and Sumarian guardian. If you live in a big city, you might find one (or more) in front of a downtown library or historical building. The sphinx below (the "Home" Cache -- N39 48.686, W086 9.481) is located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
The sphinx must be 3-dimensional object that is a "true" scuplture.
In other words, larger than something that could be held in your hand. Exceptions will be made for sphinx-like objects with true historical value. Statues of lions don't count - a sphinx has the body of a lion but the head of a man. A sphinx may also have wings...
Have someone take a picture of you, along with your GPS, by the sphinx; this will be your proof of visit.
The rules: 9/16/02
- Log your visit of a sphinx and include a picture of you, the sphinx, and your GPS (all in the same picture). Be sure to upload your picture within 48 hours of posting your find.
- Log the coordinates, city and state and/or national location of the sphinx.
- We encourage you to log any history or details about the sphinx that you are aware of.
- You may only log this cache once and a particular sphinx can only be logged by the first finder.
- Please make sure your find has not already been found by checking the cache log entries for recent finds.
Thank you, good luck, and I look forward to your logs!
