The obelisk of Concorde Square was originally placed in front of the Luxor Temple in Egypt. In 1836, the Governor of Egypt paid tribute to France as a gift. The obelisk is 23 meters high and weighs 230 tons. Its body is carved out of a block of pink granite. It is engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphs to celebrate the great achievements of Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II. It took three years for the Obelisk to reach France through the Nile, Mediterranean, Atlantic and Seine rivers, and three years for it to stand in the center of Concorde Square. Egypt had more than fifty obelisks, but now there are only a few left. They have been sent to other countries, and dozens of obelisks are distributed in Europe.
Apart from the pyramids, the most distinctive symbol of ancient Egypt was the obelisk (also known as the obelisk). The sun was one of the most important gods in ancient Egypt. The huge shape of the Obelisk represented the light of the sun. The top of the tower is a pyramid with pictographs engraved on all sides of the stele body.
The Egyptian obelisk is the tallest building in the center of Concorde Square. It is in line with Champs Elysees Street. From a distance, you can see the golden spire, which guides the direction. Think of such a thin and long stone tablet coming from distant Egypt. I don't know how the mechanized annualization could be achieved there.
Johnny sees really different, great places.
This Egyptian Obelisk refers to the Obelisk at the centre of Paris Concorde Square. The obelisk was first located in the bronze statue of Louis XV. Later, during the French bourgeois revolution in 1793, it was destroyed by angry French and turned into a guillotine, where the Louis XVI couple both held their wedding and went to the guillotine. Today, the Obelisk stands here, sweeping away the bloody past night, becoming a symbol of peace and friendship. It was given to France by the President of Egypt in 1831. It was installed here in 1836. Looking at the wedge-shaped inscriptions on the stele body, we really can't understand and feel ashamed. We can only know from the data, which records the deeds of Pharaoh Ramsay II.
Obelisk is one of the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. It is a monument to worship the sun in ancient Egypt. It is also the most distinctive symbol of ancient Egyptian civilization besides pyramids. The shape of the obelisk is pointed, square and columnar, shrinking gradually from bottom to top. The top of the obelisk is like a pyramid. The apex is often wrapped in gold, copper or gold and silver alloy. When the sun rises east, it shines like a dazzling sun. Stele height varies, the general slenderness ratio is 9:10:1, made of whole granite. The stele body is engraved with an engraved pattern of hieroglyphics. Ancient Egyptian obelisks were then transported to Western countries in large quantities.
