Justin Buchholz November 1, 2015 History 134 Sphinx By: Justin Buchholz Overtime, man has talked about many mythical beasts, monsters, and demons.

The sphinx is typically shown “with the body of a lion, most often with a human head and sometimes with wings” (http://www.ancient.eu/sphinx/).

Then, somewhat like how treehouses connect, I added in ladders and floating sidewalks to connect each of the houses and placed water barrels and fishing poles around the houses as well.
