The oldest record of a lion comes from ancient Egypt. The deity Sekmeht is a goddess with the body of a woman and the head of a lion. She was a great protector of the Pharaohs. The pharaohs were later on depicted as sphinxes. Shpinx were built to protect and guard the tombs, temples and other important areas. The sphinx is a creature with a head of a human and the body of a lion. In China, the Buddhist population respects the lion as great magnificence and protects it's believers from ghosts and demon spirits. Many entrance ways in China are encompassed with a lion on each side. Similar to China, in Europe, you will find many buildings and different architecture with lion carvings, statues and archways. These animals are known to protect a space as guardians. Standing tall and proud in a regal manor, a symbol of a lion has been taken on by many kings, nobleman and warriors in history.
