Stargate II by lostknightkg Stargate II by lostknightkg
The shape of Egyptian pyramids is thought to represent the primordial mound from which the Egyptians believed the earth was created. The shape of a pyramid is thought to be representative of the descending rays of the sun, and most pyramids were faced with polished, highly reflective white limestone, in order to give them a brilliant appearance when viewed from a distance. Pyramids were often also named in ways that referred to solar luminescence. For example, the formal name of the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur The Southern Shining Pyramid, and that of Senwosret at el-Lahun was Senwosret is Shining.
While it is generally agreed that pyramids were burial monuments, there is continued disagreement on the particular theological principles that might have given rise to them. One theory is that they were designed as a type of "resurrection machine."[14]

Inspired by the stargate sagas.

Giza Plateau, Egypt.

Awesome work, Kris :clap: I like the mysteriousness of the lightbeam--Phaoroh might be signaling to the Gods or he might be saying 'You idiots forgot to put in a door!!!' :shakefist:
