Hermes Trismegistus, classical god Featured Print

Hermes Trismegistus, classical god

Engraving depicting Hermes Trismegistus, a syncretism (joining) of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. The writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus were hugely influential on mediaeval alchemists and led to a revival of the Hermetic movement in western Europe. This in turn led to various brotherhoods being established, notably the Rosicrucians and the Golden Dawn. This engraving comes from Symbola aureae by Michael Maier, published at Frankfurt in 1617

Pyramids at Giza Featured Print

Pyramids at Giza

Pyramids at Giza. Satellite image of the three pyramids at Giza, in northern Egypt. The pyramids are thought to have been built between 2600 and 2500 BC, as tombs and monuments for members of the ruling dynasties of ancient Egypt. The largest pyramid (lower left) was built for King Khufu, or Cheops. Its construction is thought to have taken over 20 years, and for many centuries it was the tallest building in the world. The pyramid at centre right was built for King Khafre, son of Khufu. The smallest pyramid (upper right) was built for King Menkaure. The pyramids at Giza are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World still intact

Pharos lighthouse, Ptolemaic Egypt Featured Print

Pharos lighthouse, Ptolemaic Egypt

Pharos lighthouse. Historical artwork showing what the Pharos lighthouse at Alexandria, Egypt, in the third century BC, might have looked like. The lighthouse, also known as the Pharos of Ptolemy, was designed by Sostratus of Cnidus, and built in the reign of Pharaoh Ptolemy Philadelphus between 285 and 247 BC. It was built from white marble, and fires were used at night, and mirrors in the day, to direct ships into the bay of Alexandria. Its height was between 115 and 135 metres, one of the tallest man-made objects of the time, and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was destroyed by several earthquakes in the 14th century. Artwork from The Picture Magazine (volume 111, London, 1894)
