Its certainly a fascinating piece of equipment, but it doesn't have to be a tool, it could be anything that Kha particularly liked such as a musical
What bothers me about using it with the circular piece on top is that you have holes cut into it that would be useless lying against a level - so why
the holes. If they are for water to be placed inside then why so many holes, one would suffice. It also does not look to me as though the 'bottom'
of the artefact is level so I wonder if it could be used accurately.
It could, were it a measure of some kind be used on its side or a bit like the Celtic Cross was used to measure the stars. I would come down on it
being some ind of instrument used to align edges and buildings to the astronomical alignments that meant so much to the Eqyptians. Today we are out
of their world totally because we have working clocks and watches and don't live our lives on the principle of as above, so below. Its hard.
for us to imagine their world where ritual and observance ruled the day.
I'd like to make a comment on Kha himself. Is it only me who can see a clearly defined waistline that is obviously unlikely to be male especially
when taking into account the outline of two breasts. Man boobs? Also if you look at the length of the bottom half of the body, the top half seems
incredibly short. In fact the bottom half is virtually
double the length of the top half.
