About This Image:
The ancient Egyptian ruins at Abu Simbel are notable for many reasons. In antiquity, the massive temple you see in this black and white print was carved from a solid mountain to honor the pharaoh, Ramses The Great. Ramses II reigned for over 60 years, a period in which he built temples and cities on a monumental scale. The ancient Temple at Abu Simbel faced ancient Nubia and was meant as a reminder of the incredible power of Egypt’s pharaoh. And here we are thousands of years later still admiring the monuments built under his rule.
Almost as impressive as their original construction is the modern day story of these Egyptian ruins. When the second dam at Aswan was built, the original site where Abu Simbel stood was going to be submerged by the massive lake. Thus began an amazing feat of engineering in the late 1960’s to rescue the most significant Nubian Monuments. These ancient ruins carved from the living rock In situ were cut into large blocks of rock, moved and re-assembled on higher ground. As you can tell, they were reassembled in their ruined state.
Each of the giant statues on these Egyptian ruins represent Ramses The Great. There were originally four of these colossi but only three survive today. An earthquake damaged one in ancient times. Even with those damages, it’s hard to gaze on these ruins and fathom how they could be over 3,000 years old! Boggles the mind doesn’t it? Few of us can hope to have the kind of immortality that Ramses found. He truly lives on through the amazing works accomplished under his legendary rule.
Have you stood at the Egyptian ruins at Abu Simbel and looked into the face of Ramses The Great? Or does this print call to you because you love Egyptian history? I hope you might take a moment to share what speaks to you most in this ancient Egypt print?
Note: Abu Simbel along with the other Nubian Monuments is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site

Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
