Photographer's Note

An upward pov inside the Karnak Hypostyle Hall, the largest of its kind in the world. The 2 statues of Amun Ra (Amun Re), the God of the sun, air, and fertility, wearing the hat with the double plume, at left and right, have both been emasculated, probably because of those easily embarrassed French ladies again. (The French were there from 1798–1801 AD, after the chaos caused by the Ottomans (1786-91 AD) trying to regain their control over Egypt). Here's the uncensored nsfw version of Amun Ra!
