  • Obelisks were set in pairs, at the entrances of temples, and to some Old Kingdom tombs and closely related to the cult of the Sun God Ra also known as Atum.

What does an obelisk symbolize?

The Ancient Romans were strongly influenced by the obelisk form, to the extent that there are now more than twice as many obelisks standing in Rome as remain in Egypt.
Why is the obelisk important?
  • An obelisk was a monument made of stone. Each obelisk was placed in a public place. In ancient Egypt, obelisks were often built in pairs. ... The pharaohs ordered these huge monuments built for them so that they would always be remembered.

What is Marble Inlay Work?
  • “Marble Inlay work” is one of the most attractive art that done from marble. Same type of that adorns the Taj Mahal and other Mughal monuments.It is a closely protected traditional art and only a few expert exponents are available today.
  • The delicate process involves cutting and engraving marble shapes manually. To start with, a predefined pattern e.g., floral design or geometrical design is engraved on the marble slab. Small pieces of marble of different shades are cut delicately to fit in these grooves precisely. These small pieces are then slipped in the grooves. Apart from marble, many other materials can also be used.
