Mystery Egyptian Desert Spiral
Friday, 11th May 2007 by Alex Turnbull
Update: Thanks to cowens and others who informed us that this is actually an absolutely massive piece of land art called desert breath. Click through for some images and a way better description than I gave it!
What on earth is the purpose of this massive spiral in the Egyptian desert?
It appears to be made from near-perfect circles scooped from the sand, which decrease in size toward the centre of the spiral – where there is a much larger circular trench.
Whatever the spiral’s purpose actually is, it must have taken a serious amount of effort to put here.
