Carved from sandstone, this magnificent model of a temple façade appears to rise from the desert dunes. The architecture consists of four columns mounted over a fairly large base with a lintel above. Compared to the size and complexity of some egyptian temples, this one appears to be quite modest. It might also reflect the influx of greek ideals as related to architecture. However, despite the similarities to greek buildings, this temple is purely egyptian. The lintel is decorated with a central winged solar disk flanked by two rearing uraei cobras, typical egyptian symbols. The base features a central plaque into which a symbol has been etched three times. The symbol consists of an ankh resting in what appears to be a shallow basket flanked by two staffs. A column of pseudo-glyphs has been inscribed on either side of this central panel. As well, two of the columns have been decorated with empty cartouches. Might this temple model have once served as a soviegner for a foreign merchant to take home with him? Perhaps it was a model of a famous temple? Perhaps it was used as a building model to show the patron before construction began? This temple façade is a stunning work of art in itself, but it also symbolizes the glories of egyptian architecture and this civilization as a whole. less
