Looking at Khafre sarcophagus, I'm curious to understand what is original and what is added. Specifically with respect to the rig that holds the lid up. I understand that's an added feature for 'presentation', but if you look closely at the wedges I'm curious to know if that rig of modern material is those wedges alone, the wedges attached to an upper surface, or both an upper surface and lower surface. The reason I'm curious is specifically with respect to the bottom of those wedges. that surface appears to be flush with the surface of the open box. But it appears to not be flush at the front, or at least a bit lower. If its original stone under the wedges, then its curious that they've made a lid support for ease of sliding it back to remove the risk of it falling, breaking, etc.

That makes this arrangement appear to be a layout to facilitate the ease of opening and closing the box for regular access. And the missing stone in front is consistent with a space to approach the box for removal or replacement of contents like a path to the box with minimal awkwardness, while still maximizing the protection of as much density surrounding it.

These are very courteous features for the 'grave robbers' if a tomb.
