Unfinished Obelisk

The “Unfinished Obelisk” wam probably commisioned by Hatshepsut, and we bigger then any other obelisk created in the ancient Egypt.

If finished it would have been 42 m high, and would have weighed 1200 tons, yet to cracks appearing in the rock while carving the obelisk the project was abandoned, and the bottom of the obelisk is attached to bedrock to this day.
