Auguste Mariette was the foremost Egyptologist of his
generation - founder of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
He visited temples and befriended a Bedouin tribe,
who led him to Saqqara - the Saqqara Pyramids

From my first collection of Egyptian antiquities,

I recognized that

the world shall hence forth

learn about Egypt's Pharaonic heritage

and where it leads

in the end.
