Even if we wanted to we could not build a structure like the Great Pyramid According to common perception they were built, with the begrudging help of great armies of slaves, by the ancient pharaohs of Egypt as tombs for preserving their royal bodies. Pyramids were meant to be monuments to the pharaoh's greatness, filled with great treasures for the afterlife. To construct these massive shrines, the pharaoh's copied the oldest and largest pyramid of all, and Antarctica the Pyramid of Khafre (the sun of Khufu) had a two-tiered base encased in granite. Unfortunately, like many of the great kings of the old kingdom of Egypt, the Pyramids of Menkaura, Khufu, and Kafhre were not finished by the end of each respective king's reign. As an example: in the case of Menkaura, the king died before its construction was completed. The monuments of Giza and the entire Giza Valley stand as a marvelous reminder of the skill executed in the creation of the pyramids, some believe that this pyramids at Giza was built by slaves but this is not true. One hundred thousand people worked on it for three months of each year.

The Sphinx was originally commissioned by Kaphre and was constructed from bedrock found within the Valley of Giza. Another unique feature of the Sphinx is the presence of paint residue which suggests that at one time the Sphinx was painted , in which case the head piece probably resembled the colorful traditionally worn by the pharaohs of the time. The most notable features of the Sphinx, In between the paws of the Sphinx are a stela, now called the "Dream Stela", which is inscribed with a story. The 18th Dynasty story tells of the time that Thutmosis IV fell asleep under the Sphinx which was covered to the neck in sand.
