monihampton The obelisk at Luxor, rises 23 metres (75 ft) high, including the base, and weighs over 250 metric tons (280 short tons). It is decorated with hieroglyphs exalting the reign of the king Ramses II. It was made out of ONE piece of red granite probably from the Aswan granite quarry. Originally there were two obelisk's, the other one was moved to Paris, Fr in 1833. #obelisk #hieroglyphs #egypt #luxortemple #luxor #monihamptoninEgypt 4h

lifeuponcanvas See, seeds seasoned this earth

Third of the sap

Sat under the sun

Sapling attracted to natural acts

As it becomes

Some days cloudy, loudly we rung

Thunder

Call on rain

Lightening our way

Lightning is eye's trace of witnessing within an innocent life, laced to wide taste of being alive by grace

Of god(des)

Constant

Change

Branches trained to hold on

Held high

While leaves are for autumnal gravity

Have a seat

Under shade

And snow

Which blows over in spring

To a footstep ready to bring anew

Season

Seed

demetravg One would just see the #hieroglyphs and imagine that they are about the mysteries of life and so on and then some bloody archaologist gives out the original #translation. And get the rules of a pub. #precepts_of_ani #1500bc #drink #moderation #egyptians 10h

cornelius_the_3rd Simple illustrations are always fun to do. Today's was Horus, Egyptian sky god. Side note: Horus disturbed me when I was a small child. 😟
