Dark side of Sphinx, Oldway mansion, Paignton
Dark side of Sphinx, Oldway mansion, Paignton
The sphinx stares into the sun at the Oldway mansion, forming a thought or two every so often. It might have had one or two thoughts since the Singers put it here and then ceased to exist. It has got ram's horns, so maybe there is a bit of a Pan somewhere in its makeup. This motif appears elsewhere. From this angle, it does seem to hold some darkness in its bosom.
