Illustration n7 from a still open series with the non-definitive name "Oracoli" ("Oracles").
The subjet of this drawing is the ancient egyptian capital city of Waset (known later with the name of Thebes). The city takes the shape of a Pylon, the monumetal pyramida tower that used to be the gate to a shrine complex. Large loggias supported by colums are opened on all sides, revealing the internal structure. The structure is reflected below taking the shape of an inverted pyramid, characterized by long horizontal cuts filled with buildings.
The city floats in the sky above a carpet made up of desert palms, while at the top left is the cartouche with the city's hieroglyph.
