Akhenaten, the Pharaoh is represented in the Great Sphinx? Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.

Akhenaten, for the first 5 years of reign known as Amenofi IV. He was an Egyptian pharaoh of the XVIII dynasty. He reigned for 17 years, probably dying around 1334 BC. He is renowned for having abandoned traditional Egyptian polytheism in favor of a new religion of enoteist style (which maintained, that is, the belief in more deity while worshiping only one) introduced by him and based on the worship of Aton alone god, the solar disc. His religious revolution, strongly opposed, turned out to be ephemeral. A few years after his death, his monuments were hidden or killed, his statues were broken or recycled and his name was removed from the actual lists. Traditional religious practices were gradually restored, and the rulers who established a new dynasty without links to the XVIII dynasty decades later discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors (Neferneferuaton, Smenkhara, Tutankhamen and Ay), appealing Akhenaten himself to “that Criminal”. Because of this damnation memorial, Akhenaton was completely forgotten until the 19th Century, Akhenaten’s archaeological site (Horizon of Aton), the new capital he founded and dedicated to Aton’s worship at the present Amarna.

The digs started by the English archaeologist Flinders Petrie in 1891, and ended in 1937, generated a great interest in this enigmatic pharaoh. A mummy discovered in 1907 by Edward Ayrton in the Valley of the Kings Tomb KV55 could be his: Recent DNA analysis has determined that the man discovered in the KV55 was King Tutankhamen’s father, but the identification of such remains with Akhenaten is much debated.

Modern interest in Akhenaten and his great Nefertiti bride comes in part from his connection to Tutankhamun (though the mother of the young pharaoh was not Nefertiti, an unknown woman whom the Egyptologists nicknamed The Younger Lady), so As well as the inspirational artistic flow and its revolutionary religious ideas. Amon, creator, transcendent and creator of himself was a god of great importance for much of Egyptian history. During the XI dynasty (2160 BC-1944 BC) assumed the role of patron of Thebes, replacing Montu. After the rebellion of the Taliban priests against the Hyksos and with the reign of Ahmose I (1539 BC-1514 BC), Amon assumed national importance, exemplified by its fusion with sun-god Ra in the figure of Amon-Ra. God Aton, that is, the solar disc, probably the result of the theological speculation of the priests of Heliopolis, was understood as a sensible manifestation of god Ra-Horakhti (Ra, Horus of the Two Horizons), in turn melting of Horus and the god Sun Ra.

He appeared in the Middle Kingdom and the fortunes of his worship began during the reign of Thutmose IV, grandfather of Akhenaten, in the first decade of the 14th century BC. When he was still a prince, in the course of a hunting trip on the plain of Giza, the future Thutmose IV would have a vision of the divinity of the Sphinx of Giza, the solar god Ra-Horemakhet, as evidenced by the great Stele of the Dream erected between the paws Of the Sphinx himself, which he provided for restoring in the respect of this experience of his youth. 

There is a beetle, dating back to the reign of Thutmose IV, on which Aton is mentioned as a distinct divinity while leading Pharaoh to victory in battle. With its 73.50 meters in length and over 20 meters in height, the Great Sphinx is the largest statue ever made. The Sphinx is a hybrid creature, consisting of a lion’s body and a human head, a creature that merges into one divine being the most potent feline animal power and the human intelligence of the sovereign. The oldest bas-reliefs depict this creature as a griffon that exterminates the enemy; In the statue, this energy is like harnessed, dominated by human intelligence, abandoned in a majestic and divine attitude. Even though scholars agree to believe that the Great Sphinx dates back to the Fourth Dynasty, the attribution to Cheops, Djedefra, or Micerino remains an open question.

There is no inscription indicating which of the three is the Sphinx’s client. My hypothesis is that the Great Sphinx was nothing but the representation of Akhenaten, if we look at the Sphinx’s face well, we can see that it resembles much to the weird face of Pharaoh. Among other things, there are stories and correlations between Pharaoh and supposed visions inherent in the Great Sphinx. The ancient texts describe the ancient history of Egypt as the predinational age, where the gods ruled Egypt for over hundreds of years, and Akhenaten is undoubtedly an ancient Egyptian pharaoh who belonged to that historical period if It was not for the anomaly to be both out-of-place and time.

Some theoreticians interpret the elongated skull of Akhenaten as a sign of an extraterrestrial heritage. The Ancient Egypt and its history are undoubtedly one of the most incredible stories on the surface of the planet. Not only for the majestic architectural accomplishments noteworthy but also for their incredible knowledge in the various sciences, this is an impressive detail shared by a few other ancient civilizations around the world. However, the Pyramids of Giza and the great majestic Sphinx are not only the only mysteries surrounding Egyptian civilization but also their enigmatic and detailed list of their rulers, on this list, one of the most enigmatic pharaohs that stand out from the rest is Akhenaten.

Akhenaten, was the father of Tutankhamun, one of the most famous Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Many consider Akhenaten as one of the greatest and most influential religious innovators in the world. Many consider it as the first monotheist of all history, a forerunner of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Muhammad known as prophets who worshiped only one God. According to Egyptian mythology, Akhenaten descended from the gods who arrived on Earth at the time of Zep Tepi and to this day, people still believe that this Pharaoh comes from the stars. According to the “Pyramid Texts,” there was a time when Earth came out of primordial chaos and the gods appeared. This first time is called “Zep Tepi”.Many researchers including me … believe that ancient Egyptian civilization was born in 36900 BC, when the Gods, who came from the sky, ruled the land of the Pharaohs. It is believed that Akhenaten is one of them. Akhenaten, considered by many as a heretic pharaoh, reigned and dominated ancient Egypt and led him to an entirely different religious lifestyle, trying to reconstruct the first and ancient religion of Egyptian tradition:


“There is only one God, my father. I can approach by day, by night. “- Akhenaten


Aten, or commonly depicted and depicted in ancient texts as a divinity depicting the “Solar Disc”, as well as Sinuhe’s story from the 12th Dynasty, the deceased king is described as a God ascending to heaven and joining with the Solar disc, the divine body blends with its creator. However, Akhenaten was much more mysterious, his strange body fueled and suggested theories that could not have been an ordinary pharaoh but actually a mysterious leader who came from heaven. Although Akhenaten is well-known because of the shape of its mysterious head, the list of features that characterize it is much longer: an elongated skull, long neck, sunken eyes, thick thighs, long fingers. Why did Akhenaten order the changes he made in real iconography to show himself as a “thin” Pharaoh? Mysteriously, even Nefertiti, the wife of Akhenaten was depicted with an elongated skull. Did they have any genetic abnormalities that caused the elongation of the head and disproportionate and deformed body anomalies? Furthermore, what do we know more about this strange Pharaoh and his origins? Is it possible that he was a hybrid human? With Extraterrestrial DNA?
