The Unfinished Obelisk
Aswan was the source of ancient Egypt’s the finest granite used to make statues and embellish temples, pyramids, and obelisks
The large unfinished obelisk in the Northern Quarries has provided valuable insight into how these monuments were created, although the full construction process is still not entirely clear. Three sides of the shaft, nearly 42m long, were completed except for the inscriptions. At 1168 tonnes, the completed obelisk would have been the single heaviest piece of stone the Egyptians ever fashioned.
