The first and most ancient of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Pyramid of Giza is also the only one to have survived to today. Despite having been erected over 26 centuries ago, it is the most imposing stone monument ever to be created. Historians estimate that it took over 20 years to be built, but the secrets of its construction still remain a mystery. Even more surprising is that, at a time when slavery was commonplace, archaeological expeditions have shown that it was artisans and voluntary workers, well-fed and well-treated, who brought it to conclusion. These volunteers were joined by a workforce from all over Egypt. Different villages also contributed to this great religious project by sending provisions to the workers. Out of this fraternal spirit came the monument we know today as the Queen of Pyramids.
The result of a formation process that stretches over millions of years, marble is the residual product of the transformation of sedimentary rock. It is the quintessential material that has journeyed through time and accompanied mankind throughout our life and evolution.
An exercise in sturdiness and elegance, the Kheops collection connects the noblest and most refined marble to a massive brass structure, manufactured to 1/100th scale. Cut from sand using highly precise techniques, the marble slabs are pumiced by hand in order to remove all imperfections, and then reassembled, keeping the natural veins of the stone perfectly intact.
