The Great Pit of Zawiyet el-Aryan.

The Great Pit of Zawiyet el-Aryan.
(by Keith Hamilton)

“The size and richness of the materials, the perfection of the cuts and joints, the peerless finish of the granite sarcophagus, the boldness of structure and the sheer height of the walls, everything comes together to compose this so far unique ensemble. It is an awe inspiring shock and nowhere is the power and mastery of the old Egyptian architects so suddenly and strongly obvious as here.”

Gaston Maspero.
