And in places imperfect!

And what of the poorly cut and finished sarcophagus (granite box, if you prefer) in the GP?
Thinking of the GP and granite - what of the rough bosses found in the Antechamber and the King's Chamber.
The evidence here is for primitive but effective hand-tools and some kind of abrasive material.

Oh, hang on a sec . . . I'm not a scientist like Origyptian or an engineer like Jon so I must be wrong - evidently these imperfections (the imperfectly worked granite not Origyptian and Jon) are mere figments of my imagination.
Drat! I thought I was onto something then. :(

So many questions.
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
