lotus flowers on a murky temple lake at karnak, upper egypt

2017

 

 

 

karnak temple complex, upper egypt

under the reign of pharaoh ramses II

around 1250 b. c.

 

the temple complex had a vast lake from which the priests did their ritual washings prior to start their daily temple routine praying, singing, doing offerings and taking care of god amun's golden statue.

imagine this holy lake at night where its waters seem to be dark and murky, covered with lotus flowers swimming on its surface ...

what might lurk under the dark surface ?

would you dare taking a swim in it at night ?

don't you fear amun's wrath after having desecrated this holy site ?
