One of the most famous statues in the world, Great Sphinx of Giza, is a massive work of art that depicts a human head mounted on a massive lion body, all made out of limestone. Watch it at the time of sunset when the sky looks orange-ish with golden sunrays scattered over the massive statue.

Add to it the huge Pyramids in the backdrop and there you have, one of the most sumptuous evening ever!

Carved from the bedrock of the Giza plateau, Sphinx is a 73 m X 20 m single ridge of limestone, one of the largest single-stone statues in the world, since 1905 people got to see the complete body of the Sphinx, which was covered in sand before.

Yes the Pyramids were used in storing mummies I.e the preserved bodies of the Egyptian Pharoes kings and rollers. Using hot balms and Acient technology these bodies where kept fresh in the tombs.
     Record has it that the Egyptians believed that to protect a true king they needed a king to be the supreme protector so? , it was wise for king to guide  a king. So they built a king in the cloak  of a lion and placed it right in front of the dreaded kings.
      So in the spirit realm to get to them you must pass through them, that way you can never get to them for its there will to live for ever.

3 THE AFRICAN RENAISSANCE MONUMENT
(SENEGAL)

This is a 49 meter tall bronze statue located on top of one of the twin hills known as Collines des Mamelles , outside Dakar , Senegal . Built overlooking the
Atlantic Ocean in the Ouakam suburb, the statue was designed by the Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby after an idea presented by president
Abdoulaye Wade and built by Mansudae Overseas Projects, a company from North Korea .

On completion President Wade said,

"It brings to life our common destiny. Africa has arrived in the 21st century standing tall and more ready than ever to take its destiny into its hands."

This never went down well with the people of  Senegal first the ill regime  of Wade and then then...

    It was believed that the statue was show of the authoritative  and power enthusicating  trick of the president to get all under mind control as they look upon the statue.
       Some locals and tourist once reported in explained love for the president when ever they looked at the statue.
       The question begs was the statue Medusa? Hmmmm maybe when next you see a statue you might as well not look if you you are not sure what it really is.

2. THE NORTH KOREAN LEADERS
People bowing to North Korean  leaders.

To better understand this, here is a testimony from a tourist.
It's easier to just "go through the motions", bending over in front of the statue doesn't have to mean you respect the man if that's not what you are thinking. The guides will probably be quite offended if you make a point of not "showing your respect". I bowed at two Kim Il Sung statues, his body, and the Kim Jong Il statue at the International Friendship Exhibition (they requested I do up my jacket for this one too). But going along with their customs doesn't mean I agree with the regime.
A saying goes when in Rome behave like the Romans. 
I had advice you never go to North Korea why? Behaving like them would imply bowing before the statue of there leader Kim and his fathers.

Yes as mysterious as it seems it is true they only way to avoid this is stay away from the statue or pretend you are sick.

The reason they erected this statue is basically to make a god of  themself. They want to live for ever and one way of doing this is making the people worship them.
