A Word A Week Challenge – FIGURE

A Word A Week Challenge - FIGURE

The FIGURE of the Egyptian pharaoh is extraordinary – both in scale and detail. The pharaoh’s form appears across Egypt in so many ways. He can be a magnificent statue standing guard in front of an ancient temples; he may appear as a subtle carving atop a column; he may be represented in a painting on a papyrus or on the walls of a tomb. Wherever and however they appear, these FIGURES make a lasting impression.

The photo shown here for Sue’s A Word A Week Challenge is from the Temple of Luxor. It is Ramesses II (the same pharaoh immortalised at Abu Simbel).

  1. I’ve been to Alexandria and some of the more famous sights outside Cairo, including the Pyramids at Giza. But your photo reminds me I have a lot of unfinished business in Egypt!
