the great pyramid


This is a shot of the Great Pyramid of Giza, built by Khufu (Cheops). The pyramid stands 138.8 meters (455.2 feet) high. Oddly, aside from the pyramid itself, the only other artifact remaining representing the king who built it is a tiny statue that is about two-inches tall. When I learnt this and saw the statue in the Cairo Museum it struck me as rather ironic.
