Field trip….


Just a quick update (away from the actual model). On June 7th Jean Li gave me a guided tour of the Egyptian collection at the Royal Ontario Museum.   I was able to snap a few pictures which I will be able to use as reference.

A few gaps were filled in.  At first, I thought that it was a khekerfrieze  on top of the screened elements between the columns.  I was able to get my hands on the original print version of Rankes illustration of the front of the temple, and it appears to be a repeating Uraeus relief (similar in style to the pic I took at the ROM).


At first I thought the details along the cornice was a Khepri scrarab, but after discussing this with Jean we’ve come to the conclusion that these are more likely to be a series of cartouche.

I’ve incorporated some of these modifications into the front of the temple.

I was immersed into the world of virtual archeology for my Masters Research Project at Ryerson University.  The focus of this project was the digital reconstruction of the el-Hibeh temple in Egypt.  After four months I believe I was able to demonstrate the potential this medium has to offer as a way of bridging the past and present. I'm currently visualizing the past, present, and future of a pre-contact indigenous community.
