Here’s another shot of the Temple of Dendur which is part of the exhibit of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City:

As I stood in the Museum looking at the temple, I was intrigued by the juxtaposition of the Temple, built in 15 B.C.E., and the backdrop: The Manhattan skyline outside as seen through the windows of the building.
