Hathor Temple Ceiling
18x12 inches (Tablet)
18x13 inches (Tablet + Stand)
The Hathor Temple Hypostyle Hall in Dendera, Egypt created on real black slate. Hours of digital cleaning and inspection were done before the first slate was successfully minted. The ceiling graphics exclude the columns so that a full view of the famous ceiling can easily be seen and felt... in your hands.
The dominant structure in this archaeological complex is the Temple of Hathor, an enormous stone structure with a rectangular elevation punctuated by the Hathor-headed columns of the hypostyle hall within. The ceiling of the Hypostyle Hall at Dendera Temple Complex is simply astonishing; it is enriched with an incredible amount of figurative detail carved in low relief and painted in subtle shades against a light blue background. This hall is an architectural wonder, a masterpiece of ancient Egyptian design and decoration, which covers every surface and has been recently cleaned, revealing a superb astrological ceiling in all its original vibrant colors & design. The ceiling of the first hypostyle hall is divided into 7 bands of well preserved astronomical figures (some familiar, others much less so) featuring the goddess Nut, vultures and winged sun-discs and the Roman signs of the zodiac. Though the entire temple is magnificent, it is the ceiling that remains the true crown jewel. Created to display on included wood stand or handheld for close inspection.
