The fact that the gate wall frames of this particular mastaba at Giza, look like or were meant to be two slabs, associates the Jambs, with Slabs and Columns. Therefore, since each jamb has an inscription resembling a Serekh or a mastaba, presenting an entrance. For such, the access to some imaginary place in the Sky as it is shown on the lintel of many other false doors illustrations. (Mastaba/ Chapter 09: Niches and Arches were the Afterlife world's gateway). - See more at: [www.ancientegyptlink.com],
The Inventory Stele, mentioned earlier, was supposedly written by the priests of the cult of Khufu during the 26th dynasty to praise the deeds of the ancient king. However, it makes no claim whatsoever that Khufu built the Great Pyramid. A very strange omission indeed if Khufu really did build the Pyramid.
Moreover, 4th dynasty inscriptions found at Giza confirm that Khufu was building the mastaba fields for his high officials to the west of the Great Pyramid in ‘year 5’ of his reign. Is it really likely that Khufu, having initiated the largest, most complex and innovative pyramid-building project in Egyptian history, would have allowed any work to be carried out in building mastabas? Can we seriously believe that Khufu would have put his great venture at risk by diverting resources to the building of such mastabas in the fifth year of his reign, bearing in mind that he did not know whether he would live long enough to see the completion of his pyramid? The idea is ludicrous. The inscriptions only make sense if the Great Pyramid was already built before the time of Khufu.
