Huge sphinx makes crawling journey to new spot
By MICHAEL RUBINKAM
Workers move a 25,000-pound Sphinx of Ramses II at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia on June 12. The 3,000-year-old sphinx is being relocated from the Egypt Gallery where it's resided since 1926 to a featured location in the museum's new entrance hall.
The largest ancient sphinx in the Western Hemisphere was on the prowl Wednesday for the first time in nearly 100 years.
