Photographer's Note

An exterior temple wall in Karnak covered in hieroglyphics and petroglyphs. Might search for a detailed close up of the shadowed area at right & post it as a workshop.

From Wikipedia, describing the outer walls of the main Hypostyle Hall:

"The outer walls depict scenes of battle, Seti I on the north and Ramesses II on the south. Although these reliefs had religious and ideological functions, they are important records of the wars of these kings. On another wall adjoining the south wall of the Hall is a record of Ramesses II's peace treaty with the Hittites that he signed in Year 21 of his reign."
