Order this handmade alabaster obelisk today and own an extraordinary symbol of ancient Egyptian history and architecture. This beautiful obelisk is hand-carved out of stunning locally-sourced alabaster.

Alabaster was used for a variety of different items, from small vessels to carry perfumes, to burial items, to sculptures and tombs. It was a highly-versatile material due to its soft and easily malleable texture as well as its natural white color with natural colored veins.

Obelisks were built in temples and embellished with hieroglyphic letters that refer to religious dedications, usually in reference to god of sun, Ra. In other cases, obelisks were engraved with social instructions for public.

Obelisks were erected as reverential monuments, celebrating the dead, honoring the gods and representing the kings. They were intended to symbolize renewal and rebirth as well as serve as funerary monuments.

Obelisks were thought to attract and absorb the rays of the sun, allowing for the resurrection of the deceased. They were often decorated with hieroglyphics or images of kings and gods. We offer obelisks carved and decorated to resemble real obelisks made in the tradition of the ancient Egyptians.

This brown-painted ancient Egyptian obelisk is hand-made of natural pure alabaster powder. It is 100% handmade following the same technique passed down by the ancient Egyptian craftsmen. It is carved out of one whole stone, following the ancient Egyptian tradition. Obelisks in ancient Egypt were carved primarily from Granite stone, quarried at Aswan.
