Frank Domingo, independent Egyptologist John West, and geologist Robert Schoch believe that the head of the Sphinx has been recarved because it does not show the same, heavy erosion as the rest the body and:

If the Sphinx was supposed to be a lion, then its head and shoulders are terribly out of proportion
with one.
Statues of other Sphinxes in the Cairo museum and elsewhere in Egypt are much more proportionate with a lion than the Sphinx is. This is because it's very likely that the heavily-eroded, original head was recarved -possibly more than once and thus has lost size from these alterations. ________________________________________
