Medinet Habu. Mortuary Temple of Ramses III

Medinet Habu or the Mortuary temple of Ramesses the III is the resting place of a former New Kingdom Egyptian King of the Twentieth Dynasty. The actual temple is said to have over 75,350 sq ft of wall reliefs and its design caught my eye and the colors in particular gave me much inspiration to create several pieces of macrame jewellery some have already been sold. The sandy and aged bronzes blends just perfectly with the washed out teal tones. One particular picture of a ceiling decoration and the pillars supporting it I found to be just amazing. The amount of hours work and the talent the the crafts men that created this are just awesome.
