Art Print Description:
It’s been so long since I visited the Egyptian ruins on the Island of “Philae” that I’m honestly not sure if I knew then that they had connections to ancient Rome or not? I put Philae in quotes because the real sacred island of Philae rests beneath the waters of Lake Aswan today. When the first dam on the Nile was built, the island was submerged periodically. When the high dam was built in the 1960s, Philae was completely submerged, but not before the temples on the island, like Trajan’s Kisok seen here, were taken down and re-assembled on the island of Agilkia
Whether I knew about the connection with Rome or not, an at least subconscious connection would explain why the architecture of this particular temple on Modern Philae attracted my attention. There was just something about those columns, a mix of Roman and Egyptian architecture that spoke to me. This temple is known as Trajan’s Kiosk. For good or bad, the Romans were ultimately a consummate multicultural society. Traditionally they didn’t eradicate other cultures but attempted to subsume them. When they conquered a people, there was an attempt to meld their religions and customs. In that vein, Trajan’s Kiosk has a relief inside showing Emperor Trajan making an offering to the Egyptian gods Osiris, Isis and Horus.
Perhaps had I visited Trajan’s Kiosk on the original Philae, I would have a different feeling, but to me the reconstructed Philae felt quite genuine. I was thrilled to see the ruins of Abu Simbel, but there was ultimately a sensation that they weren’t where they belonged. I believe I would have felt that way even if I hadn’t heard the story of the Nubian monuments being moved in the 1960’s. But standing before the temples on Philae, it felt perfectly natural. I guess it is, after all, easier to move a building than a whole mountain!
Have you visited the island of Philae and seen Trajan’s Kiosk as well? Or perhaps you’re a student of history who simply loves the cross-pollination of cultures seen in this ancient architecture? I hope you might take a second to share what attracts you to this particular Egypt print?
Note: Philae is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site

The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.

I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.

I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
