Hatshepsut's 8th Pylon - the BEFORE photo

Egypt: Karnak
Originally uploaded by Brooklyn Museum

The 8th Pylon at Karnak. Started by Hatshepsut sits amongst many years of debris.

The statues have not yet to been freed of their surrounding debris and many hieroglyphs on the pylon remain hidden.

This lovely photo comes from the Brooklyn Museum Archives.

See the difference 100 years makes in my previous article on the 8th pylon.
