Hatshepsut's Temple at Deir El Bahari free pdf HATSHEPSUT'S TEMPLE AT DEIR EL BAHARI Hatshepsut's Temple at Deir el Bahari is considered a wonderful experiment in ancient Egyptian art and architecture- as such it is a uniquely remarkable structure built in white limestone that's a sight to behold. More important, this work provides some insights into the men and a woman, avante garde in their thinking and actions at a time when females dared not rule! However, given the opportunity, Queen Hatshepsut ruled well and was involved in many remarkable adventures and building projects, chief of which was her mortuary temple at Deir el Bahari, on the west bank at Thebes that also highlights a diplomatic voyage to Punt on the East African coast. This wonderful structure, unique in many ways, was a classic in its days of active use and though time and man have taken some toll, it still radiates with magical, mystical, artistic splendor, millennia later. A three story structure when one was the norm, use of alternating columns and pillars in colonnade form, hundreds of statues of the Queen in various attitudes, art in remarkable raised and sunk reliefs, the earliest bequeathed anthropological study in history, shrines to several gods, choice of a remarkable location for its construction, employment of line and space over distance, and ramps, courts and colonnades all magnificently blended and juxtaposed against the mountain as a backdrop, have made this temple not simply the envy of the ancient world- it is a remarkable tourist attraction that leaves visitors breathless and in wonder at this classic piece of monumental architecture and salutes its architect Senmut, genuinely motivated by love of a beautiful lady. This work consists of two poems to god Amon-Ra and the temple of Deir el Bahari itself, an Overview, Introduction, two essays on Hatshepsut and Senmut and conclusions by the author. In addition, it contains published reports written more than a hundred years ago when the Swiss Egyptologist Edouard Naville excavated the temple in the 1890s. Even more, some 20 illustrations and many photographs, some old and new and others taken from the temple's "bird's eye view" on the mountain top (no longer possible), descending the mountain, as well as the ascent into the structure's ramps, colonnades, shrines, walls, courts and its wonderful artistic depictions towards the middle and upper terrace at the mountain's base where resides its "Holy of Holies" Sanctuary. The photographs are designed to "let the monuments teach" and as such, they highlight the art and architectural wonder of the temple, magnificence of the architect's creation of art and architecture that blends beauty with ancient mystical spirituality- and as such, this work is considered a significant Guidebook for students, specialists and lay people as well as for tourists. fredsegypt.com@fredsegypt.com sumonpublishers.com@sumonpublishers.com blackegyptbooks.com@blackegyptbooks.com blackfolksbooks.com@bblackfolsbooks.com
