Sphinx unearthed from 1923 Cecil B. DeMille movie set

Buried beneath the shifting sands of the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes is a story of Biblical proportions.

In 1923, legendary filmaker Cecil B DeMille built an epic Egyptian dreamscape on California’s Central Coast for his silent, The Ten Commandments. 

Twenty one giant sphinxes lined the path to an 800 foot wide temple. Legend has it that after filming was done, the set was too expensive to move and too valuable to leave for rival film makers to poach - so DeMille had it pushed into a trench and buried. 

And so there the Sphinxes lay, entombed in graves of sand, where they were mostly forgotten. 

Until now.
