"Behold, Hattusili, the great chief of Hatti, has made himself in a treaty with Ramses, the great ruler of Egypt, beginning this day, to cause to be made good peace and good brotherhood between us forever; and he is in brotherhood with me and at peace with me and I am in brotherhood with him and at peace with him forever."
~Temple of Ramses, beloved of Amun - celebrates Ramesses The Great’s battle against the Hittites, eventually leading to victory and peace~
This is a colour pencil sketch on toned paper, depicting The Great Temple at Abu Simbel in Southern Egypt. The massive edifice overlooks the Nile and would have been a potent reminder of Ancient Egyptian power and dominance in the region. The massive temple was constructed in the reign of Ramesses The Great displaying his imposing likeness, which inspires awe even to this day.
