Description
Cleopatra's Needle in New York City is one of three similar named Egyptian obelisks (One in London and Paris)
and was erected in Central Park (at 40°46′46.67″N 73°57′55.44″W, just west of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) on 22 February 1881.

It was secured in May 1877 by judge Elbert E. Farman, the United States Consul General at Cairo, as a gift from the Khedive for the United States remaining a friendly neutral as the European powers – France and Britain – maneuvered to secure political control of the Egyptian Government.

Made of red granite, the obelisk stands about 21 metres (69 ft) high, weighs about 200 tons, and is inscribed with Egyptian hieroglyphs.
It was originally erected in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis on the orders of Thutmose III, on 1475 B.C BC.
The material of which it was cut is granite, brought from the quarries of Aswan, near the first cataract of the Nile.
The inscriptions were added about 200 years later by Ramesses II to commemorate his military victories.

The obelisks were moved to Alexandria and set up in the Caesareum – a temple built by Cleopatra in honor of Mark Antony or Julius Caesar – by the Romans in 12 BC, during the reign of Augustus, but were toppled some time later.
This had the fortuitous effect of burying their faces and so preserving most of the hieroglyphs from the effects of weathering.

No DLC's needed.
I was going to do the Scarab Crabs on each corner, bu the tri count would have gone through the roof! Sorry.


There are NO Vanilla game trees on the model at all, just the custom ones.
So, if you prefer the model without any trees at all, then do not sub to the dependant trees on the right.

But I highly recommend you do, as they are AWESOME!

If you want the stats of the model, then see image two above.

I hope you enjoy!
