By overlaying side and front views of the two statues we can see that virtually none of the facial features line up at all:


Based on his thorough study of the face on the Sphinx, Sgt. Domingo sketched out the likeness of the individual it repesents:



As we can see the features are distinctively negroid and it was likely a Nubian Pharaoh from the southern kingdom of Kush who was the last to recarve the head of the Sphinx.  Why do we think it's been recarved?
