A combination of water, salt, air pollution, sun, sand, and wind is destroying the huge statue just
outside Cairo. This five-thousand-year-old statue, which has the body of a lion and the face of a
human being, is too badly damaged to be completely saved. First, there is not a good drainage system
around the statue and too much water has been running into the stone statue for several years. As a
result, tiny pieces of salt have been left on the stone and have damaged it. Second, air pollution from
the increasing amount of traffic in Cairo is also destroying the ancient statue. The air is so full of
poisonous gases that it is damaging the statue even faster. Third, the statue is being destroyed by
extremes of temperature. The air is very cold at night, but during the day the stone of the statue
becomes very hot under the strong sunlight. Other natural forces such as severe sandstorms attack the
statue as well. Finally, the tourists who visit the statue every day also cause a lot of damage to it.
