The snow covered Sphinx that has been captured and gone viral, but don’t believe everything you see

Ever since we first heard about Egypt's snowfall, images of the snowy country have gone viral. People are marvelling over the miraculous and beautiful desert landscape covered in snow. This particular image - of the snow covered Sphinx - has flooded the Internet and social media. But don't let it fool you, the image that has been so widely shared is in fact a photo of a miniature replica of the Sphinx at the Tobu Square Theme Park in Japan - a theme park that houses 102 reproductions of historic relics and famous architecture but at 1/25th of its original size!
