Clickbait warning...

(yeah, they got me)

https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/12/02/568001580/californian-archaeologists-unearth-an-egyptian-sphinx

>>Archaeologists recently unearthed a curious artifact in California: An Egyptian sphinx.

>>Unlike the Great Sphinx of Giza, which was made of bedrock, this sphinx was made from plastic. And it wasn't carved by the ancient Egyptians, but molded by designers on the set of Cecil B. DeMille's 1923 biblical film The Ten Commandments.

>>After filming was complete, the 12-story set was too expensive to dismantle—and too valuable to leave for rival film studios to pilfer. In a move just as ambitious as his filmmaking, the director ordered it buried at a location unknown to the public.
