EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning photograph print, titled "Crystal Palace, Sydenham, London: A circa 1859 view of the giant figures in the tropical transept at the north end of the Crystal Palace," captures the awe-inspiring grandeur of one of Victorian England's most iconic structures. The image, taken by renowned photographer Philip Henry Delamotte, showcases the intricately detailed statues of the Egyptian pharaoh Rameses II that dominated the transept. These magnificent figures were meticulously copied from the originals carved in the temple at Abu Simbel and transported to the Crystal Palace as part of its extensive Egyptian Hall. The photograph offers a glimpse into the Palace's rich history and its commitment to showcasing the wonders of the ancient world. The transept, filled with lush vegetation and bathed in natural light, creates an otherworldly atmosphere, enhancing the sense of wonder and discovery. The ironwork and glass structures that support the roof are also visible, a testament to the engineering prowess of the time. Delamotte's masterful composition and use of light and shadow bring the figures to life, making it easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of visitors exploring the Palace and marveling at these magnificent creations. This photograph is not only a beautiful work of art but also a valuable historical record, offering a glimpse into the past and the fascination with the ancient world that captivated Victorian England.
