EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the magnificent Statue of the falcon, sacred bird of Horus, proudly standing at the entrance of the Temple of Edfu in Egypt. Bathed in warm sunlight, this iconic landmark stands as a testament to an ancient civilization steeped in rich history and mythology. The intricate stone work and meticulous carving on this statue exemplify the skill and craftsmanship of Egyptian artistry. The close-up shot allows us to appreciate every detail, from the hieroglyphics adorning its surface to the lifelike representation of this revered animal. As we gaze upon this awe-inspiring sculpture, we are transported back in time to a bygone era where gods and goddesses reigned supreme. The falcon's association with Horus - one of Egypt's most important deities - adds an air of mystique and reverence to this already majestic figure. Visiting such archaeological sites not only offers a glimpse into ancient civilizations but also serves as a reminder of our shared human heritage. This tourist attraction holds immense cultural significance for both locals and visitors alike, serving as a bridge between past and present. Oliviero Olivieri/Robert Harding has masterfully captured the essence and beauty of this historical landmark through his photography. Through his lens, we can appreciate not just its physical grandeur but also its symbolic importance within Egyptian folklore.
