A Striding Ramasses II.

Ramasses II strides out from between two pillars. In Egyptian imagery the subject always strides with the left foot first, this is thought to be a symbol of power. This could be because the left foot was closest to the heart, and the heart is where the egyptians beleived that all life force and the center of conscience was.

Ramesses II built his section of the temple at a different angle then the earlier construction. This may be to line it up with the temple of Karnak about a mile away. Ramesses II filled this area with many statues of himself. You can see other pieces of statues of Ramesses II, a left leg and two broken crowns that have fallen to the ground.
