Egypt Abu Simbel Temple Aswan Ramesses II

£750.00

Original vintage travel poster for Egypt featuring a great image of tourists admiring the iconic Abu Simbel Temple and ancient hieroglyphics carved on the rock above with a sailing boat visible on the side and the title text in white against the blue sky background. The 13th century Abu Simbel rock temples were built to commemorate victory in the Battle of Kadesh and as a lasting monument to Pharaoh Ramesses II (Ramses the Great; c. 1302 BC-1213 BC) and Queen Nefertari (Nefertari Meritmut; d. 1255 BC), located at Abu Simbel village in the Aswan region of Egypt, near the border with Sudan; due to the building of the Aswan High Dam on the River Nile and creation of Lake Nasser, the temples were relocated in 1968. The union between Egypt and Syria - the UAR (United Arab Republic) - in the Middle East was established in 1958 but broke up in 1961 due to the coup d'etat in Syria, although Egypt continued to be known as the United Arab Republic until 1971. Poster issued by the Tourist Administration Cairo. Printed in U.A.R by the Institut Graphique Egyptien. Good condition, restored paper loss in margin, minor staining, backed on linen.
