Ultimately, the sculptor “mocked” Ozymandias both imitating perfectly but in a contemptuous manner even when Ozymandias gave his “heart that fed.” The irony is that even though Ozymandias radiated his prowess so that the sculptor could easily recreate his power, but in reality, the sculptor is the only one getting the attention and praise. The next stanzas have imagery to implement a basis of irony. The traveler explains, “And on the pedestal, these words appear: (9)” the traveler passes the voice to Ozymandias: “My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; (10)”. The term “King of Kings” gives the visualization of a powerful king because it is an allusion to Jesus in the bible as a savior. However, the subsequent stanzas show the opposite.
In this book, Cyril Aldred argues against the belief of Ancient Egyptian Art being static and unchanging over the many centuries over the Old, Middle and New kingdoms. He tries to show the subtle developments that Ancient Egyptian Art went through and draws a chronological sketch of the progress in Art, Architecture, and sculpture. Substantiated by numerous illustrations, the author compares the art objects made by the Egyptians under the rule of several Pharaohs and points out at the differences in each reign - epistemological and ontological.

The elites’ dead bodies would be preserved as mummies or had ka statues for the ka to reside afterlife; otherwise, their ka would dwell in the hell for eternity.

Great Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure from the Old Kingdom built around 2551-2472 BC was located the west side of the river which was the land of dead.

The poet also says that in a desert, two huge legs of stone, with no part of the rest of the body and a huge, broken, stone face which lies near those legs, half sunk in the sand. The features on the face of the idol showed that the sculptor could interpret human emotions very well.
Also, different analysis of human nature and symbols about society are depicted in the book. In the history of French Literature, the Little Prince is considered as one of the most widely translated books. A pilot, the narrator of the story, crashes on the Sahara desert.
In The Ten Commandments, the Middle East, represented as Egypt, is depicted as literally ancient, because the story takes place in roughly 1300 to 1200 B.C.E. It is a dusty dry desert inhabited by Hebrews and Egyptians, as well as camels and it is portrayed through stereotypical shots of the pyramids, sphinxes, and other Egyptian monuments, many of which were still being constructed, thus dating Egypt as ancient. The fact that slavery was still prevalent in Egypt also presented the region as archaic and backwards. It is also presented as a place of false religion and mysticism. Ramses and his subjects pray to false idols and gods and receive nothing in return, as occurs when Ramses pleads with the God of Darkness to resurrect his son, which of course does not happen because it is a false religion.
