Artist's Description

In the background, Khafre’s pyramid is the second largest of the Ancient Egyptian Pyramids of Giza and the tomb of the fourth-dynasty pharaoh Khafre (Chephren).

The pyramid has a base length of 215.25 m (706 ft) and originally rises to a height of 143.5 m (470.5 ft). The Pyramid is made of Limestone blocks (weighing more than 2 tons each). The slope of the pyramid rises at a 53°10’ angle, steeper than its neighbour, the Pyramid of Khufu (on the right) which has an angle of 51°50’40". The pyramid sits on bedrock 10 m (33 ft) higher than Khufu’s Pyramid which makes it appear to be taller.

In the right foreground is the Great Sphinx of Giza (Arabic: أبو الهول “The Father of Fear”), a half-human, half-lion Sphinx statue. The largest monolith statue in the world, it stands 73.5 metres (241 ft) long, 6 m (20 ft) wide, and 20 m (65 ft) high. Commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians in the 3rd millennium BC, it is the earliest known monumental sculpture.

Both are located in The Giza Plateau at the west bank of the Nile River, near modern-day Cairo, Egypt.

The Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
