Welcome to Virtual Egypt: a collection of interactive tours of ancient Egypt
Although a virtual tour stops short of the impact that total immersion has, the interactive photography and narration here put the viewer in direct contact with some of the most mysterious and sacred sites on earth.
Join legendary symbolist author and egyptologist John Anthony West on a virtual tour of the priceless treasures and mysterious artifacts of Ancient Egypt.
Photography, design and authoring by award-winning animator and interactive author Chance Gardner
Disk 1 - The Panos
The temples and monoliths to this day retain much of their ability to cause inspiration and even transformation in us. The sacred geometry and arcane visual symbolism of the hieroglyphs and reliefs seem to speak to our higher centers, sometimes subliminally, sometimes very loudly.
The photos were taken over the course of two years in the field with the venerable John Anthony West. It has been my pleasure to have had an exposure to this remarkable man and the eye-opening revelation that the past, present and future can be very different than what we were taught in school.
All locations have schematic diagrams of the site and all of the photographs can be be zoomed in/out and rotated up and down. Each subsection within the location also has an audio description so it is just like you are taking a virtual tour or walk through of the site with John Anthony West as your tour guide.
The Great Sphinx
The Temple of Man
Tomb of Mereruka
