Is that a salesman I see in this ancient carving I found at a temple in Luxor? He looks like he’s trying to flog the very latest high tech cleaning product which you must buy to have your pyramid looking all shiny and new! Meanwhile the guy on the left who is holding the key to his front door is looking quite defensive and unimpressed! Perhaps this was the world’s first product advertisement?
