When is a door not actually a door? When it’s a false door, built into Old Kingdom Ancient Egyptian tombs to symbolise the threshold between the worlds of the living and the dead.
This particularly impressive example can be seen at the British Museum in London, and is believed to belong to Ptahshepses, who was the High Priest of Ptah, who lived from about 2490 to 2400BC, making this door around 4400 years old…
The limestone door is 3.66m high, and is from Saqqara, 5th Dynasty Egypt
