You asked for a photo of Ramses the Great and I, and I delivered. Ok, so this photo is more of me than Ramses, but the statue of the Egyptian ruler was a little large to fit into one photo.
Ramses stands guard over the large reflective Pyramid in downtown Memphis. When the Pyramid was built, it was an arena and event space. For the past handful of years, the Pyramid has been largely unused.
However, it’s about to get a new life. Bass Pro Shops has entered into a deal with the city to turn the space into a Bass Pro Shop and space for offices and other retail.
With Bass Pro moving into the Pyramid, there’s no telling what’s going to happen to the 5,000 pound statue. For now, he’s still in front of the Pryamid, spending his days posing for photos with tourists.
