Silver Sphinx Earrings



Product Description

Norman Lindsay was fascinated by the world of Greek mythology and his home and grounds at Faulconbridge are filled with statues of Satyrs, Sirens and Sphinx.

The original Greek Sphinx derived from the Oedipus legend. This half-woman, half-lion guarded the road to Thebes and ate travellers unable to answer her riddles.

Lindsay created a large cement sphinx statue in the grounds of the property in 1943 to guard the steps to the pool.  This then became the symbol for the property.

Lindsay, along with Rayner Hoff, cast a radiator cap for his wife Rose’s 1926 model Vauxhall car for which Rose was the model.

Sphinx is 2 cm in length
