The Temple of Isis at Philae – I used my own sketches and photos, with floor plans of the temple, as well as some help from paintings by David Roberts, which he made in 1838. With these resources it was possible, with a bit of artistic licence, to reconstruct a 3D model of how the hypostyle hall might have appeared in ancient times.
