But the Sphinx would have never left the corpses to lie and rot, cats do not tolerate the smell of rotten.

The sphinx is beautiful and assuming - a stark contrast to the corpses hanging from the rocks around her. Oedipus' garb (or lack there of?) is very appropriate and certainly sets the image in a specific era.

The background is both lovely and effective - the details of the ground and stone is mind blowing, and the hard work and attention you paid to this image have really paid off.
