Lehner surveys the history, building and use of these mysterious monuments in unprecedented scope and detail, looking at both the practical aspects – the quarries, ramps and tools used in building them – as well as the conceptual – the cosmology and iconography of the pyramids and the intriguing Pyramid Texts. -- ‘Tomb and Temple: the Meaning of the Pyramid’ looks at the rituals and mythology surrounding the death and burial of the pharaohs in ancient Egypt, ideas of the Netherworld and the symbolism of the pyramid as an icon. ‘Building a Pyramid’ and ‘The Living Pyramid’ examine how the pyramids were built with such pinpoint accuracy and the communities that served them. ‘The Legacy of the Pyramids’ looks at the pyramid in art and examples in modern architecture. Were the pyramids actually built in the manner that Lehner says? Published at $49.95. Our price only $22.95! A great, deluxe book! 556 Illustrations, 83 in color, plus foldouts.
