Imhotep’s Pyramid, the Prototype.
4,500 years old & designed by Djoser’s vizier Imhotep.
In my mind, he’s the 1st genius. Not only did he design the 1st pyramid, still standing, a testimony to genius, BUT –
He began the art of mummification, the vital part of sending the soul of Pharaoh & everyday Egyptian on the journey to the ” Underworld ” & from studying internal organs, he gained important medical knowledge, which was preserved in at least 1 papyrus.
When the Greeks & Romans entered Egypt during / after the Ptolemaic period, Imhotep’s reputation supposedly preceded him & they venerated him as a god.
Vizier, architect, god – Quite a legacy. Unfortunately, his mummified remains have not been discovered or identified with certainty. But his reputation stands.

This is very interesting. The subject matter is very interesting. The fact that I haven’t gotten an update from the site in over a week is interesting – & frustrating.

I recommend the site based on what I’ve seen thus far, & I hope that you visit it as well. I’m not sure how often it’s updated, but I hope to receive the next one. Peruse, browse, tell them Daniel sent you….. 🙂
A quick glance through the pictures can give you confusion. They all do look like pictures of landscapes, mountains, hills, valley, cliff, or far away desert.

& 3 – D printers can apparently be used to print somewhat BIZARRE art, too.
I think if it could print ” Audrey II ” from the musical ” Little Shop of Horrors ” or a small model of ” Magenta ” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show ” that would be interesting, too. 🙂
While UK architect William Stanley has recently launched a 3D printed jewelry shop, with which to execute his 3D printable creativity, it may be his 3D printed Skele-structure sculpture that stands heads above some of the other 3D printed work in the industry. The Skele-structure is a design that artfully combines 3D printed replicas of […]
