Slaves' Tombstones

Click picture for larger view | From Mats
The people in charge over there in Egypt figured it took 20 years to build these pyramids. How do you get volunteers to shlep 2,000 pound stones everyday for 20 years? They must have been slaves. One of the great wonders of the world, I don't think the people in charge of antiquities are going to endorse the slave theory because of public relations.
The sky and the pyramids have two coats of paint. To apply the paint, I use a painting knife (that's what I call it), it has a serrated edge, and I just scrape it on until the direction is right.
