This is a painting of The Pyramids at Giza by the Bristol artist William Muller.
The scene shown is at Giza For over 1,000 years, the Egyptian pharaohs built themselves a pyramid as their burial place. The first step pyramid was built for Djoser (2667-2648 BCE). The Great Pyramid at Giza, painted here, was built for Khufu (about 2589-2566 BCE). After about 1550 BCE, the pharaohs preferred a less visible tomb cut into the rock of the Valley of the Kings.The shape may have been linked to the primaeval mound of creation, where the sun-god was born, or to the rays of the sun, or with a stairway to heaven. All the ideas of the symbolism of the shape link back to ancient Egyptian ideas of rebirth. This is a painting of The Pyramids at Giza by the Bristol artist William Muller. It is painted with oils on canvas. It is about 165 years old, and was painted in 1843.
