<p>A resin ornament in the shape of an obelisk - an ancient Egyptian pillar (measures 3.5 inches tall). <br /> <br /> An obelisk is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top. Like Egyptian pyramids, whose shape is thought to be representative of the descending rays of the sun, an obelisk is said to resemble a petrified ray of the sun-disk. A pair of obelisks usually stood in front of a pylon (an ancient Egyptian gateway). <br /> <br /> This obelisk ornament is ideal as a history gift or as a cultural display for your home.</p>

A detailed resin ornament of an ancient Egyptian obelisk.

Obelisks, or tekhenu, are four-sided monoliths that typically include a pyramid-shaped pinnacle, often featuring images such as hieroglyphics carved into the sides. In Egypt, the obelisk was seen as a symbol of the sun god, Ra, and they typically flanked the entrances to temples and religious spaces.

An impressively detailed souvenir celebrating ancient Egypt.
