Description

While their origins and completions will forever remain mysteries, the Great Pyramid and Sphinx of Giza stand to this day as miraculous structures whose physical attributes belie their vintages and materials of the age. This framed display showcases actual parts of these historic Egyptian wonders. Framed to 11-1/8 x 13-1/8, the shadowbox-like setting shows a genuine piece of mortar from the Great Pyramid, as well as a shell used in construction of the Sphinx. Both were obtained during the 1800s but date from the erection of these monuments in approximately 2,500 B.C. Accenting the piece is a 100-year-old black-and-white photograph of both structures. LOA from John Reznikoff, University Archives. This item has a reserve (estimated value $750-$1500)
