The Statue of Ramses II at Memphis

The symmetry that characterizes this 300-ton statue of Ramses has yet to be explained by modern engineers. While looking up at the constructed piece of art, Dunn realized that Ramses’ nostrils were identical in size and shape and perfectly symmetrical. To bring about this level of complex refinement, the ancient Egyptians had to have created a “much higher level of manufacturing technology” than today’s engineers have yet to conceive.

The Statue of Ramses II at Luxor

Similar to the statue of Ramses at Memphis, Ramses at Luxor exhibits unexplainable accurate symmetry as well. Both statues prove that the Egyptians utilized a grid to execute the exactness that both project. In his book, Dunn writes the following: “Ramses’ mouth had the same proportions as a classic 3-4-5 right triangle. The idea that the ancient Egyptians had known about the Pythagorean triangle before Pythagoras, and they may have even taught Pythagoras its concepts, has been discussed by scholars, though not without controversy.”
