Rob Neyland: The Great Sphinx Revelation
Rob Neyland: University of Colorado, Journalism, Advertising, Anthropology. Child of a military family, he travelled the world growing up, fueling a lifelong interest in the ancient world. He resides in the ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado, and is an avid skier, sailor, mountain biker and sculptor. He has been a real estate broker and sculptor there for the last 42 years. As a sculptor in snow, he has performed in international competition all over the world and has won the gold medal on three continents. Curiously, it was this expertise in reductive monumental sculpture that inspired his passion about the carving of the Great Sphinx and other monuments of ancient Egypt. After years of reading about it, he travelled to Egypt with Robert Schoch and Manu Seyfzadeh in 2019 and subsequently wrote a paper about the possible re-carving of the Sphinx from a sculptor’s viewpoint. He returned to Egypt in 2022 to further his research on this subject.
