Abu Simbel

'Tutankhamun's Lamp' on left from 1959, with a 1963 Air Post stamp of Abu Simbel on right. When I visited the Cairo museum in January, I think the lamp was made from alabaster?
A shot I took when I was at Abu Simbel, surprised at the amount of graffiti from the 1800s!
From the 1962 '15 years of UNESCO' 2v set. The stamps proclaim 'Save the Treasures of Nubia' with an image of Abu Simbel.
