EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the awe-inspiring giant limestone statues of Ramses II, also known as Rameses, dating back to 1304-1237 BC. Standing tall in all their grandeur at the Temple of Ramses in Abu Simbel (Simbul), these majestic sculptures depict the mighty pharaoh holding two significant symbols of kingship - the crook and the flail. Each statue is meticulously carved with a cartouche for Rameses on its shoulder, adding an exquisite touch to their already remarkable presence. The attention to detail is truly astounding, highlighting the skill and craftsmanship of ancient Egyptian artists. Scottish artist David Roberts beautifully captured this scene in his watercolour painting dated 9 November 1936. Through his artistry, he transports us back in time to witness these monumental structures that have stood strong for centuries. The hieroglyphs adorning these statues tell stories of power, leadership, and divine authority held by Ramses II during his reign. As we gaze upon this image, we can't help but marvel at the rich history and cultural heritage preserved within each stroke of paint. This photograph from Universal Images Group (UIG) serves as a reminder of humanity's ability to create enduring masterpieces that transcend time itself. It invites us to appreciate not only the artistic brilliance but also our shared connection with ancient civilizations who left behind such extraordinary legacies for future generations to admire and learn from.
