Drew: Nice work on the presentation.

SC: Thank you - appreciated.

Drew: From Petrie: "The top of the upper block of the leaf is a mere natural surface of the granite boulder out of which it was cut, utterly rough and irregular; and not materially broken away as it dips down deeply into the grooves, and is there plastered over."

Does he mean the top of the granite leaf and the groove beside this top was plastered over? In other words, plaster joined the two by an unbroken surface?

SC: I think what Petrie means here is that there is plaster in the grooves into which the Granite Leaf is slotted. This is not surprising given that plaster was used in ancient times as a lubricant. Supposedly it was also used to assist the sliding of the three massive granite plugs down into the Ascending Passage. (See this excellent article on the Granite Plugs by Dr P. A. Femano which questions this whole scenario). The article shows how it is more likely that the granite plugs were probably built in-situ in the AP and NOT slid down the Grand Gallery as commonly portrayed.

Regarding the Granite Leaf, what is also problematic are the modern 'restoration' works that were carried out within the Ante Chamber where it is evident that modern pink plaster has been used to smooth over parts of the Granite Leaf at its edges, making it now impossible to see the stones as they were originally observed in Petrie's time.

Regards,

SC
