Damaged carvings on the pillars inside the Hypostyle Hall in the Karnak temple

The Karnak temple is 35 centuries old, which is a huge timeline to cover, especially when the temple is exposed to the elements over the years, and to looters and others (especially people who had no concern for the conservation of the historical monuments); and when you see some of the better sections, you can forget the huge amount of time that has passed. But there has been a lot of damage over the years, as you can see in the erosion of the carvings on the pillars of the Hypostyle Hall as seen in this photo.
