SHIJIAZHUANG CITY, China (NBC/RTV) — This life-size replica of the Great Sphinx of Giza is a long way from the desert sands of Egypt.
It sits among lush green trees and mountains in a village of northern China, about four hours from Beijing.
The sphinx was recently built, and a report on the Hebei Province’s website said it would be one of the key attractions of an $8 million movie theme park.
Tourists have been traveling to see the sphinx.
Some visitors said they were excited about it, but one said it looked out of place.
