A wonderfully illustrated book on the monuments, ruins, statues and bas-reliefs of the Ancient Egyptian temples of Karnak. With a text written by one of most renowned twentieth century philosophers, accompanied by the photographs of Georges and Valentine de Mire, this is an important archive record of an important historic site. Lubicz discusses the context in which the temples originated, contemporary belief system, perceptions of the pharaohs, writing, paintings and myths, the architecture of the temples, their orientation and inscriptions, bringing new scholarly and philosophical insights to the study of these monuments. Much of the book takes the form of a photographic record, with 452 black and white plates and commentary.
