I am so aware of it that I am aware of its limited truth: the colossal statuary you have in mind was by and large a later development (with the Sphinx an arguable exception). Hint: Ramses II was of the 19th dynasty, long after Khufu’s time.
Your mistake is the common one of assuming cultural uniformity over the entire 3,000 or so years of pharaonic history.

Not really, since (for one thing) it is not the only supposed likeness - and why ‘supposedly’ scratched? His (Horus) name is quite legibly present.
