Point accepted...the percentage of responsibility to assign to each mechanism WOULD differ from the body to the outside walls, with a wide plateau generating a higher occurence of runoff effect than just the monument's body.

I notice something else, after looking at various Sphinx images again: while I do see some signs of the scalloping/vertical weathering that (to me, at least) give a strong hint of rainfall mechanism, the Sphinx's body is considerably terraced in its weathering, which I USUALLY see resulting from wind/sand erosion, and sometimes by water (such as riverine action), although water erosions are typically smoother.

Conundrum on conundrum-how to divide relative percentages among the various factors (Do I feel a slight migraine coming on? AARGH!)
