Littérature en rapport :
This pair of sphinxes evokes the one created by Eugène Guillaume, adorning the entrance 
of the Legion of Honor museum and the garden of the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. 
Our pair of sphinxes can also be compared to the pair of sphinges called "Marly",destroyed in the Revolution.
