The viewer looks down the narrow corridor between two rows of the columns of an ancient Egyptian Temple - at the end a perilously tipped column and lintel partially block the view to the desert dunes beyond - extensive hieroglyphic decoration - groups of Arab men give a sense of scale to this astonishing edifice.
