Dubai architecture has a lot of amusing references to ancient Egyptian religion, with places like Wafi City & the Raffles hotel. There's no shortage of hieroglyphics throughout the interiors, but this one caught my eye... here's a photo I've taken in one of the malls in Dubai:

Can anyone make it out?

Enhanced the image now.

Having no previous experience deciphering hieroglyphs, looking up all the images hasn't been easy. A half-way, rough result below. Could be gibberish, but maybe if someone expertised on the forum can have a glance and make something meaningful out of it, would be very intriguing indeed!

I tried to learn hieroglyphs when I was younger. It just seemed a waste of time if I am not an Egyptologist. I have translated yours. It says anyone who opens these doors will fall into a 50ft pit with spikes sticking up from the ground. My advise is don't open the doors. Ask Indiana Jones. :lol: :twisted:
