Description

The watercolor drawing is very likely from Prince Pückler himself. Pictured is the temple of Seboua (today: Wadi es-Seboua or Wadi as-Subu) in the Nubian desert (today Sudan). In the background you can see a pylon of the Amun temple, built by Ramses II (around 1303 BC - 1213 BC). In front of it are two rows of sphinxes with lion bodies and two statues of the pharaoh. The drawing is labeled on the back with "Ludmilla Assing Zg. FPM". They were created between March and June 1837.
