Many has been said, much has been studied, and a little is discovered
A visit to the remarkable Stelae, I happen to see the strange one’s, despite having a serious of surviving issue our Stelae has stood still fascinatingly.
I had a deep looking into fallen one’s basically, which is located on the side of queen #Sheba bath, they have this different appearance in terms of #character and #cares with this basic mathematics #measurements.
It wasn’t so tranquil seeing a century history and legend placing inside a drainage like any less of a garbage, I highly stand against the care given to the fallen Stella which by fact has undiscovered meanings of carving overlaying them.
A stela along queen’s bath has this unique and unrelated character of carving over them, one with rulers carved on it, the other with circular, heart and organic shape character, more over we can also see a huge window with pitched lintel over it, you might have a clear look on your visit before but not the exact definition of those character.
Beside the carvings, as a total volume some of them have this unfinished look of stelae related to the much decorated one’s, having unique capital or null sometimes.
A – the one with look of a window structure. B – the one with look of Double capital.
Aksum was a center of civilization and architecture during the 4th centuries and also primary and exemplary leadership.
Remember the one with measuring units on it found right in front of the cave? . . .yeah that big stone ruler! . . .well it was impossible seeing clear carvings without the measuring unit over it on some of the fallen stelas. someone can come up with the conclusion that the ruler has got much to do on the carving and construction of those remarkable Stelas,
A B C
Note-The numerical demonstrations only applied for the above stelae A
I had the chance to demonstrate the basic numerical representations and relations among the provided carvings in a way we can predict the scale and proportion the handy mans used during the past.
One (1) unit = 4cm
One (1) circle= 5unit=20cm
Circle diameter= 4unit=16cm
Interval between two circles= 7unit=28cm
