Luxor Summer Vacation, Dynasty 19

Ramses II was so happy to see me that he put my picture along with Amun's on the obelisks at Luxor temple. Doesn't my sun disk look awesome? I think maybe those obelisks originally belonged to someone else, but Ramses kept putting his name on everything in thereā€¦ [Obelisk bearing Ramses II's name, Luxor Temple. New Kingdom Egypt, ca. 1250BCE. Photo 2007 by Asta.] (tagged: Ra, Amun)
