It would make sense that Vyse would copy from the template on to the beam vertically as we see it .
He may have been a crook, but not a fool ..
Had he copied it horizontally across more than one beam that would have obviously been a fake.. So yes he had no choice but to copy a horizontal original into the vertical..
Why is the drawing in his journal horizontal?? .. if he had found it in the vertical he would have copied it that way??
I could also do with a photo of the glyph with someone standing next to it .. for scale..
Also photos of the glyph and the masons marks taken with the same camera at the same time..
Are there any forensic photos of this glyph available??
by that I mean that all valuable artworks are photographed .. square on ..
no distortion.. correctly lit.. for record and insurance purposes.. It really needs a trained forensic photographer to go in there and make some decent images.
I don't think that will happen somehow.
I have opened this discussion with two art colleagues.. they have no knowledge of pyramids or Egypt .. other than this is some sort of Glyph ..
To them it's a drawing/painting. just like any other.
So we have two M.A. and one PH.d looking at it . At this time..We all agree that the painting was made in situ .. not at the quarry. or prior to the block installation.
we already have some ideas.. And yes there is at least one problem with the Vyse account. At the moment we think that the painter/forger was not Vyse himself but was someone else acting on Vyse's instructions.. or at least with his knowledge.
Do you have a really good image of Vyse's journal. page with the glyph sketch ??
E mail it to me if you have..
