At Home with the Roosevelts Ep. 8 – Museum Collection: FDR Sphinx Sculpture
With war headlines dominating the news in late 1939, speculation began that FDR might seek a third term. When he said little in response, cartoons began appearing in the nation’s newspapers that depicted him as the Great Sphinx of Giza. They inspired this papier mache sculpture.
