Every ruler of Ancient Egypt wanted to leave their mark on history, and as time progresses they commissioned ever larger and more elaborate statues and obelisks.

A large quantity of these artefacts were removed to the west at the peak of the plunder of Egyptian antiquities. In fact today there are more obelisks standing in Rome than in Egypt.
