Hatshepsut's obelisk
Author Message
PostPosted: Sun Mar 16, 2003 7:56 pm 
I need to find a picture of Hatshepsut's obelisk for my research project. Has anyone come across one, either in a book or on the web? I have found all sorts of information about her and her temple, but nothing specific about her obelisks.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hey there,

I have a black and white photo on the site I am currently producing. The image can be found at http://www.ancient-egyptians.net/pyramids/ptm.htm
You can use it for free as long as it's for non commercial use.

Which obelisk are you looking for?

According to my research, Hatshepsut built two obelisks originally and had them transported to Karnak. Later in her reign, she had three more built, but one cracked before completion. They were all left at Aswan.

I had placed this on another topic, but thought you may be interested here as well.

The text on the base of the standing obelisk of Queen Hatshepsut (1479-1458 BC) at Karnak represents to me an enlightenment! The text has helped to decipher the way the ancient Egyptians described solar eclipse, and to discover the Egyptian hieroglyph for 'solar eclipse'. Then it became easy to find many ancient Egyptian solar eclipse records. A surprising discovery was the Great Hymn to Aten describes a total solar eclipse. This has paved the way to me to obtain an absolute, eclipse-based New Kingdom and Hittite chronologies.
In the light of the Egyptian texts, I believe Horakhty as a hawk was a manifestation of the Sun through eclipses, namely, the partially eclipsed Sun past the shadow bands phase.

bel,

If your are going to use someone else's ideas word for word the least you can do is cite the source! These are the (copyrighted)words of one AYMEN MOHAMED IBRAHEM. They can be found under the section titled "THE CHRONOLOGY USED IN THIS STUDY " on www.eclipse-chasers.com/egygod2.
