A photo taken by Francis Frith in 1857, titled “Osiride Pillars and Great Fallen Colossus, at the Memnonium, Thebes”. The Osiride pillars were supposed to be representations of the god Osiris. The colossus was a statue of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II. An alternative name in antiquity for Ramesses II was Ozymandias, and the statue is thought to have inspired Percy Bysshe Shelley’s sonnet of that name. Thebes is now known as Luxor.
