3D techniek voor Choefoe in Elkab

Mededeling van het Ministry of Antiquities op Facebook 10/02/15

In collaboration with the Ministry of Antiquities, the joint Belgian – American expedition succeeded in applying a new technique in copying and registering the rock inscriptions at Elkab desert area – Aswan Governorate, in a site dating back to King "Khufu" of the Old Kingdom. The expedition team used high resolution digital photographs then transformed them into three-dimensional model; the model created is then rectified to create a very accurate base for a drawing.
The Minister of Antiquities Dr. Eldamaty clarified that these inscriptions shed light on the activities of Khufu in Upper Egypt particularly in the more remote desert hinterland of Elkab. It is also one of the times in history that a 4th Dynasty inscriptions are found in an upper Egyptian site, added Eldamaty.
Through this new technique, many documentary and registration processes can be achieved easily guaranteeing more accurate results compared with the traditional methods.

Prof. John Darnell, head of the joint Belgian-American expedition, who previously made some important discoveries in the Theban Western Desert, said that this new technique has a great importance in copying and registering rock art through taking high resolution photographs from different angles and integrating them using Agisoft Photoscan software using a technique called Structure in Motion. The software converts two-dimensional photographs into a three-dimensional model; the model is then rectified to create the most accurate possible base for a drawing. The rectified image is loaded onto a tablet computer, which is then used to create digital drawings of the inscriptions on site creating a rapid and accurate process of coalition. Prof. Darnell also pointed out that the registered inscriptions concentrated in two sites southeast of the large ancient settlement of Elkab. One site, the Borg el-Hamam (the “Pigeon Tower”), is a striking pillar of stone with two-dozen inscriptions, including large Predynastic tableaux(dating to circa 3500 BCE).A short distance to the east of the Borg el-Hamam is a small concentration of rock inscriptions—the “Khufu Site.” The rock inscriptions at the site include a depiction of a vessel with a falcon atop its prow, over the rigging of which has been carved the Horus-of Gold name and the Nomen cartouche of Khufu—“Twin Horus of Gold, Khufu.”

On the other hand, Dr. Dirk Huyge of the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels who discovered the oldest rock art in Egypt in the desert of Kom Ombo clarified that the cartouche of Khufu appears a total of three times at the site, along with additional depictions of boats, human figures, and a hippopotamus. Three of the boats reveal the use of bipod masts, a feature standard on Nile vessels of the middle and later Old Kingdom. One of the boats has a backward-looking hedgehog head at the prow, a feature appearing on a number of depictions of boats from the Old Kingdom, possibly indicative of an origin in the region of Elephantine. Dr. Dirk Huyge finally added that those inscriptions have never been properly published nor recorded in relationship to their surrounding terrain.

In the British Museum vinden we onder nummer EA1097 een rood granieten blok met de Horusnaam van Choefoe (Cheops) : Medjedu (mDdw)
"Hij die de vijanden verplettert (voor Horus)"
