Looking down on the island of Philae and its temples, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

Looking down on the island of Philae and its temples, Egypt, 1905. Over on the right is the square kiosk which the natives call Pharaoh's Bed; it has no roof and never was finished, but it is one of the gems of the palace. It dates back from the Roman age. The building with the large pylon is the lsis temple. That little obelisk is one of a pair - the other has been carried to England. They were created in the time of Ptolemy IX (about 557 BC) and are of especial interest because the one now in England was the monument which enabled Champollion to take the first steps in his decipherment of the hieroglyphic, before he employed the Rosetta stone.

The holy of holies and shrine for the divine image, Temple of Edfu, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

The holy of holies and shrine for the divine image, Temple of Edfu, Egypt, 1905. We are now standing where only the King and High Priest were allowed to enter, in the holy of holies of the great Horus Temple at Edfu...where the sacred processions stopped as the High Priest went in to perform the daily ritual before the god in the holy place, while on the great feast days a multitude of this man's ancestors thronged the court outside. They were simple villagers like him; they never saw the interior of this holy chamber. Stereoscopic card. Detail. From a series called Egypt Through the Stereoscope, text by James H Breasted

The hunting of the wild bull, carved on a tempkle wall at Medinet Habu, Thebes, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood Featured 5 Jan 2008 Image

The hunting of the wild bull, carved on a tempkle wall at Medinet Habu, Thebes, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

The hunting of the wild bull, carved on a tempkle wall at Medinet Habu, Thebes, Egypt, 1905. This is one of the most spirited scenes that an Egyptian sculptor ever wrought. The king, with reigns slackened and hanging in a distinct curve from his waist, urges on his plumed horses as they dash after the great hull, plunging through the reeds in the vain endeavour to escape to the river. Poising his long lance ready for the fatal thrust, the eager Pharaoh leans far over the front of his chariot; as he strains to reach the fleeing prey, he has placed one foot out upon the chariot-pole.
