The Unfinished Obelisk

The Unfinished Obelisk of Aswan
It is a huge obelisk yet to be finished. If finished, it would have easy around 41 m and would have weighed nearly 117 tons. Its grandness lies in the fact that it carries inscriptions that explain the method acting the ancient Egyptians practiced in cutting and graving obelisks.

Also the unfinished obelisk, an unfinished part worked obelisk base was discovered in 2005 at the pits of Aswan. Likewise discovered were some rock sculptures and remains that may correspond to the site where most of the famous obelisks were worked. All these quarries in Aswan and the unfinished objects are an open-air museum and are officially saved by the Egyptian administration as an archeological site.
