What difference does AE make?
Sure it can be done today without the need for webs.
Question is why did the AE need webs?
Anyway here's your previous post..
Frankly none of it makes any sense.
Rock is considerably weaker in it's tensile strength than its compressive (something like 20% of such)..... so just like in carving,
where an arm can be carved separated from the body because the rock is hard,
in less hard rocks the arm might break off so they don't usually do it. Sedimentary rock in Egypt that are generally hard are ones like travertine (Egyptian alabaster), the siliceous sandstone's used starting in the New Kingdom for construction (thin roofing beams for example), Greywacke (hard because slightly metamorphosed)...... i.e. the ones that are finely carved and polished (like granite).

So what does any of that have to do with arms breaking off?
Are you having a conversation with yourself again??
