Egyptian graffiti

Investigation of an ancient Egyptian quarry site turns up graffiti detailing obelisk orders.

Sometimes, it appears, the artisans could not resist a blank stone wall. On one wall, they left drawings of ostriches.

The ostriches are pretty (and apologies for yet more Zahi Hawass who, it turns out, is visiting professor at UCLA). Yesterday's Cthulhu coverage directed me to this figure... oh yes! It turns out representations of Egyptian gods are still in vogue after all these thousands of years.
