«Which being walks on 4 legs in the morning, out of 2
in the day, out of 3 in the evening?» This riddle has made the Sphinx a popular
symbol of mystery, the guardian of ancient wisdom; it has the head of a woman,
the body of a lion, the wings of an eagle, the tail of a bull. The bull
symbolizes dark matter, the inertia of water; the wings of the eagle symbolize
life force and passion; the lion's body personifies energy, instincts, will;
the head of man symbolizes the container of reason, earthly knowledge.
wisdom borrowed from the mysterious Sphinx four fundamental rules of human
behavior: knowing - thanks to human reason; to desire - with the power of a
lion; to dare, that is to rise courageously on the powerful wings of the eagle;
keep quiet, with an unshakable strength and a typical bull concentration. The
solution to the enigma of the Sphinx is "the Man". The Sphinx itself
is a symbol of man, which expresses with its forms the characteristics of the
human essence that surpasses animal spirits.
Sphinx is also a decorative lamp.
