www.greenprophet.com/2011/01/a…. At one time cocnut palms were brought to egypt as a delicacy. Maybe not cuban? The cliamte was more tropic before to support palm growth. Now all the palms trees are dying out. You may know more on the subject. It's hard to get all the facts historically correct as a artist. Glad you like it. :)

Geese over Giza... Nicely done. The landscape looks a bit too tropical, unless you are going with the 10,000 BC theory...

Thank you . I was just taking the direction of the director to make it more tropical. I'm assuming they did some research on the subject.

Egypt had about the same dry climate as it has now in about 2,500 BC, when the pyramids were supposedly built, according to conventional scholarship. However, the seeming presence of rain-water weathering on the Great Sphinx and is enclosure leads some to think that it may be much older, and date from a prehistoric epoque where rainier, tropical conditions prevailed.

I heard the Europeans did the same thing with all those iconic marble statues of various figures. Imagine how tacky it would have looked. Some things do get better with age :laughing:

Though I heard the pyramids themselves were smooth and white (again, covered in marble) so I felt the completed pyramids on the left and right here were accurate.

It certainly looked a lot nicer back in the day. This reminds me of a theory I heard that it was a lot more lush back then due to a different climate. Makes sense since I can't imagine why any society would decide to set up in the middle of a desert.

It's totally true. In reallity every great civilization rose thanks to a good and predictible climate wich allows long lasting food production. 
Even the fall of ancient egypt was propably due to climate change in europe wich led to starvation. The starving population went on migrating toward where they heard there was food, ancient egyptian failed to handle all these climatic refugees.

I wonder if it will ever change back. I don't know my history well, but I'm assuming Egypt being like this would have occurred during an ice age. But maybe the climate change was human influenced, especially if they felled too many trees in too short a time. I heard Australia was much more lush and green too, but the Aborigine's had a habit of burning down large areas of forest in an attempt to catch food and eventually it just went beyond the point of repair.

Yes, the changing climate played a big part in the downfall the ancient Egypt.  Well, that and the Roman Empire.
