It started as a mockery of 'The Wheel', Tarot card, where sphynx is sittting calmly on the wheel. Nowdays the wheel spins so fast, she has a hard time just staying on it:)

*does the first comment dance* Oh, a sphinx, a sphinx! I had sometimes thought how nice it'd be to add a sphynx to your wonderful collection of the myphological and fantastic creatures, but knowing that you don't like to draw human or human-like faces I had never even suggested it... AND YOU DID A SPHINKS! Great! 2)

Indeed a wonderful sphynx - love the Celtic-Egyptian blend. BTW the blue sphinx on the Waite Wheel card is the figure of Nemesis. I saw a blue fiance statue of her in the Brooklyn Museum 30 or so yrs ago - and I think long ago Pamela Coleman Smith must have seen it too to so include it in her art.
