Constructed predominantly of Limestone quarried near Giza, The Pyramids of Giza served as religious monuments heavily connected to the belief in the afterlife. A Pharaoh could travel to the afterlife with their earthly possessions and loved ones when buried together in a grand burial chamber. This 3-meter tall Limestone pyramid is located in the Osborne Park Industrial area. Engraved, “Lime Tested by Time”. It signifies the structural longevity of limestone, referencing the 4000-year-old limestone pyramids of Giza. Rejoice! now you too can live like a king, your new limestone retaining wall will not only outlive you but also complement your newly erected Shale Grey™️ Colourbond® fence, and freshly planted Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass. Monuments to man’s arrogance.
