    The Sphinx of Giza is a symbol that has represented the essence of Egypt for thousands of years. Even with all of the pictures that we see of the Sphinx, nothing can really prepare you for the time that you finally see the Sphinx with your own eyes. Here's a look at the Sphinx that will give you a hint of what you can expect to see if you visit Egypt

    In Abu simbel temple the rays of the sun penetrate into the temple🏛 and lightening the three statues for Ramses II and Amon twice a year; once in February 22 celebrating agriculture and cultivation season, and the second in October 22 celebrating flooding season. Both dates also reflect the date of Ramses II birth and his coronation🏆, There are 4 seated in the back of the temple. Ra-Horakhty, Ramses second, Amun-Ra and Ptah. The light never hits Ptah as he is a god affiliated with the underworld.

    I never knew that about this specific tomb.  That is truly remarkable and one of many remarkable things the Ancient Egyptians performed.

    Even for us Egyptians who grew up or live in the midst of all these phenomenal records of that incredible civilization are constantly reminded of how truly incredible and advanced and smart and talented these people were for their time.  I marvel at the sculpture work alone.  

    Take some of the stone sculptures alone and look at how they were able to carve out the shape of a human with that accuracy out of the side of a mountain and to smooth the surfaces out without grinders or sandpaper lol.  Who knows, they might've had their own types of sand paper to crate the smoothness on all those surfaces of mostly limestone.  Even the remarkably large marble sculptures have extraordinary smooth surfaces I think they probably used a wet stone type of honing method.  A lot of water and a huge variety of abrasive stones with tons of elbow grease.

    I think with all these incredible feats, the most remarkable one for me is the one shot deal.  Take Abu Simble for example and how they carved that entire monumental entryway with the 4 sitting kings in that size and not a single mistake!  You can't make a mistake with stone like that since the whole thing is junked.  The same with those huge obelisks.  Those are another whole story by themselves how they were able to cut those out of huge slabs of stone and then lift them into place!  

    Speaking of Abu Simble, when Nasser wanted to eventually build the Aswan High Dam, they needed to flood and create Lake Nasser to make room and divert the Nile to built the dam and so they had to move the entire structure.  What an ordeal that must've been.

    It was a sign of perfection .

    Also i was impressed by their dentistry ,according to historical findings, Egypt is regarded to having started dentistry.

    They have used different tools and treated different diseases included cavities and gums and they used strings to unite the molar teeth.

    For the loose teeth,they filled it with a mixture that is akin to a modern day composite filling: a filler agent (ground barley) is mixed with a liquid matrix (honey) and an antiseptic agent (yellow ochre). This is either used as an actual filling, or as a splint to keep the tooth in place.

    Also they used crude analgesics and sedatives prepared from the mandrake fruit.

    Those gold wire is shaped perfectly ,just like the modern wiring industry , also the small holes are matching with the wire's diameter.
