And Ronin solves the mystery! Simple and basic explanation. Thank you!uuuhhhhh, what exactly is the mystery? It's a funeral ship, designed to ferry the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
Robert Howard used them as the basis for the boats that carried [deceased] priests of Ishtar downriver in his Conan series. IIRC, it was mentioned in one of his letters to Lovecraft.
He even describes it exactly as it's pictured. I identified it as soon as the page loaded.And Ronin solves the mystery! Simple and basic explanation. Thank you!
I agree with you that we don’t really know what the pyramids were built for. Perhaps the boat was meant to sail in...just a thought lol. There was probably water there in ancient times.Yes of course it was for Khufu - because it was next to Knufu's pyramid, because they all agree it was 'im wot built it.
.....anyone seen Khufu recently? He must have been such a God that people would be carving statues of him all over the place I would think - at least put his face on a rock face like George Washington 60 feet tall.
This is Khufu.
This is the ONLY statue of Khufu that is known.........and he stands just under 3 inches high.
Even Howard Vyse couldn't find his name in the Great Pyramid - and he was paid to find it!
Oh, sorry - he did find it when he had blasted his way into a crawlspace that was never meant to be seen. He found Khufu's name scribbled in crayon - and even managed to spell his name wrong. But so firm was his belief, Vyse carved his own tablet beside the front door declaring it as Khufu's - what a vandal ....and claimed his money for proving what he set out to do.
