Long Description:
A two meter tall Sphinx Sculpture in the northeastern part of the Botanical Garden.
The sculpture originally, together with three other Sphinx sculptures, stood on the roof of the University's Main Building. However, they were made of poor cement and began to be destroyed. They were therefore removed in 1959 for safety reasons.
In 1978, this one was found standing in a basement room under the University. Among other things, it lacks a wing, but is interesting and is now placed in the Botanical Garden.
