Sphinx Switch

The Stanford mausoleum, located on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, holds the remains of University namesake Leland Stanford, Jr. and his parents Leland and Jane Stanford. Legend has it that the original structure was built with naked Greek female sphinxes on the front, but the Stanfords disapproved and had them replaced with Egyptian-style male sphinxes, moving the females to the back. Ionic columns line the sides of the strucure.

Stanford University, Stanford, CA
