Elephantine lost temple



Reconstrution done in Sketchup, rendered in Daz. Based on one of the Temples of Khnum that formerly existed on the island of Elephantine in Egypt. It was recorded by Napoleon's savants about 200 years ago, and depicted in the Description de l'Egypte. Having survived some 3000 odd years since the reign of Amenhotep III, substantially intact, it was dismantled later in the 19th century by progress-minded authorities needing building material for a sugar factory.

Re-using ready-cut blocks, an old Egyptian tradition. If memory serves me, and I think it does, the Fifth Dynasty Kings cannibalized the valley temples of the Fourth Dynasty to build their pyramids.
