Zbigniew Kosc, The bend pyramid of Dashur, 1998

The ancient pyramids, of miraculous construction and wonderful to look upon, four-sided, like huge pavilions rearing into the skies; two in particular shock the firmament. The length of one of them from on angle to another is three hundred and sixty-six paces. They have been built with immense hewn rocks, arranged above each other in an awesome fashion and wonderfully joined having nothing between them that, like cement, would serve to bind them. Their tips seem to the eye to be pointed, but it may be that the ascent to them is possible with danger and difficulty, and that their pointed tips may be found to be broad and level.
Ibn Jubayr, A secretary to the Moorish governor of Granada, XII century
