Nice to see you again, Smenkare. Very Happy

Just the other night there was a special on the History Channel about the architecture of ancient Egypt, and while covering Amarna they showed the very same floor panel. Imagine an entire courtyard decorated with such vividly colorful tiles!

Yes I saw that show, it was quite good. And thank you.

I dont know if I already mentioned this, but in Nicholas Reeves "Ancient Egypt: The Great Discoveries" There is an origional photograph of the entire floor. Its absolutely magnificent!
