In the days before digital cameras I used to visit museums and spend hours transcribing hieroglyphs so that I could translate them later. I have books full of them, but here are a couple of my favourites from Manchester Museum.

Wow. The detail in especially the second drawing is amazing. That must have taken quite a while to create. Based on the eyes and the palace facade motif, that is a sarcophagus I presume.
What time period is the sarcophagus from? I curious because the combination of wadjet eyes and palace facade is not something I remember seeing together. Then again that could just mean I have a lousy memory...

Hi, thanks for your comments and yes it took forever!

It's the coffin of Khnum-Nakht dating to the Middle Kingdom (circa. 1900 BC), there isn't much it compares to really, so no, you're not going mad!

It was discovered in a tomb with his brother Nekht-Ankh by arcaheologists working under Flinders Petrie and the British School of Archaeology in 1907. They were found in Rifeh but are now housed in the Manchester Museum.

You can find plenty of information and some more images here...

Those are very nice drawings. I donít know if you are familiar with the drawings of Richard Lepsius, but one wonders how much time he must have spent on making these. Complete temples, with ground plans, cross sections and detailed depictions of temple and tomb scenes including the hieroglyphic writing.

Thanks for the link Lutz

Hi there,

Wow those painting and drawing are really impressive. Has anyone tried to make a piece out of clay yet?

Best wishes

Wow, that is really well done. It is really nice to see these ancient monuments the way they would have looked when just finished.

Montuhotep's temple must have been quite impressive.

The discussion about Montuhotep's temple was interesting and I moved it into its own topic here:
