AUTHENTIC ANCIENT EGYPTIAN FRAGMENT RAMESSEUM TEMPLE

Unavailable
A truly authentic piece of Ramesses II funerary temple at Thebes. Picked up on a trip to Egypt in 1965 off the ground at the Temple this fragment shows Rameses seated holding a staff in his hand. Absolutely guaranteed authentic. Approximately 10" tall and 4" thick. Appears to be sandstone or other porous rock. Circa 1500 BC

If the greatness of an Egyptian Pharaoh be measured by the size and number of the monuments remaining to perpetuate his memory, Sethos's son and successor Ramesses II would have to be pronounced equal, or even the superior, of the proudest pyramid-builders. The great Hypostyle Hall at Karnak is his main achievement, and on the west bank at Thebes his funerary temple known as the Ramesseum still retains a large part of its original grandeur.
