  The support
by sayedaburas

The sculpturer had two in one, the basic one which supported the ceiling and full statue of the Pharoe, Ramses II.

Now after relocation the ceiling is supported as already mentioned above by a steel concrete dome.

Such kind of architecture might have inspired the Greeks to use the "lady column" using the stautes of the beautiful ladies of cartyades, instead of columns.
