There was a moment of silence when my friend asked me why Egyptian art? Why a people 5,000 years ago whose language obsolete?
Nothing is more striking than looking at this picture of head of Ramsess II lying on the rubbles. It is sad, mysterious, and marvelous despite of the damage.
If we obliterate the future and the past, the present moment stands in empty space, outside life and its chronology, outside time and independent of it.
