Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project



Ninth Pylon of the Temple of Amun at Karnak, north face. This pylon is located in the southern extension of the great enclosure of Karnak. It was built by Horemheb (ca. 1321 B.C.) who filled its masonry with talatat-blocks that he had dismantled from Akhenaten's great temple of the Aten at Karnak. This photograph depicts the pylon under modern reconstruction and restoration by the Centre Franco-Égyptien à Karnak. In the course of that work, thousands of talatat were discovered and removed for study. (Caption - Peter Piccione)
