http://educators.mfa.org/objects/det...ipment&page=41

Same statue now in Museum in Boston and his sarcophagus.




Taharka pyramids which is very ruined but at it height it was just as tall as many of the pyramid further north, which was painted by a french artist before it collapsed. However the tomb below the pyramid is very well preserve and huge in size, and contain beautiful hieroglphic art according to Archaeologist. This is a exert from another website.

The pyramid field of Nuri contained 21 kings together with 52 queens and princesess . The first to build his tomb at Nuri was king Taharqa. His pyramid had 51.75 m square and 40 or 50 m high. Taharqa subterranean chambers are the most elaborate of any Kushite tomb. The entrance was by an eastern stairway trench , north of the pyramid's central axis, reflecting the alignment of the original smaller pyramid. Three steps led to a doorway, with a moulded frame, that opened to a tunnel, widened and heightened into an antechamber with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. Six massive pillars carved from the natural rock divide the burial chamber into two side aisles and a central nave, each with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. The entire chamber was surrounded by a moat-like corridor entered steps leading down from in front of the antechamber doorway

Although present day Egypt is largely populated by Arabs, their features aren't reflected at all among the ancient artifacts except as captives of war to the richly melanin pigmented Egyptians.

King Tut (my avatar) was so obviously African, you'd have to be 100% blind to miss it, yet 'scientists' are falling over each other to find a white or Semitic look-alike with full negroid lips, high cheekbones, broad-based nose, and round African eyes.

I see almost no differences between Nubian and Egyptian antiquities.

Thank You lady gaga, and i really appreciate your comment, and i am glad you are enjoying this and find this interesting as well. Here is a document of what the late Archaeology George Reisner who excavated the nuri pyramid complex. Mind you some of the things he written is somewhat offensive, nevertheless it is a good read, and shows the complexity of some of the pyramids of Nuri.

Sandstone
Naga, Temple of Amun, sanctuary, excavation 104/1
Kushite (Meroitic), first century AD, reign of King Natakamani and Queen Amanitore

Left picture: The front side shows the falcon-headed Horus (left) and the ibis-headed Thoth (right) binding two plants, the papyrus and the lotus, around the central hieroglyphic emblem 'sema' (union). The papyrus represents Lower Egypt and the lotus represents Upper Egypt. Above this sign two cartouches are placed, crowned by a sun disc and double ostrich feather. The left (northern) cartouche contains the name of King Natakamani, while the right (southern) one the name of Queen Amanitore. Both are written in Meroitic hieroglyphs.

Right picture: Below, two Nile gods are binding two plants, the papyrus and the lotus, around the central hieroglyphic emblem 'sema", with the queen's second Egyptian name Merikara on the south, and the kings's second Egyptian name Kheperkara on the north.

The unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, symbolized by the sema motif, is the emblematic sign of political and cosmic order under the control of Kushite kingship.


Naga, Temple of Amun, Hypostyle, excavation no. 101/19

statue of the Aegis of Isis.






From Kawa, Sudan
Kushite, late 3rd century BC

Ornamental head of a goddess, possibly Isis

The term aegis is used in Egyptology to describe a broad collar surmounted by the head of a deity, in this case a goddess, possibly Isis. Representations in temples show that these objects decorated the sacred boats in which deities were carried in procession during festivals. An aegis was mounted at the prow and another at the stern. The head of the deity identified the occupant of the boat and it is likely that this example came from a sacred boat of Isis.

The eyes and eyebrows of the goddess were originally inlaid. The large eyes, further emphasized by the inlay, are typical of later Kushite art. The rectangular hole in her forehead once held the uraeus, which identified her as a goddess. The surviving part of her head-dress consists of a vulture - the wing feathers can be seen below her ears. The vulture head-dress was originally worn by the goddess Mut, consort of Amun of Thebes, but became common for all goddesses. The rest of the head-dress for this aegis was cast separately and is now lost, but would have consisted of a sun disc and cow's horns. The piece bears a cartouche of the Kushite ruler Arnekhamani (reigned about 235-218 BC), the builder of the Lion Temple at Musawwarat es-Sufra.
