Imhotep the African Architect Invented and Designed the Pyramid
Imhotep is the name of the first Architect in history that we know by name. Imhotep was a remarkable African Scientist, Mathematician, Engineer, Architect, and Physician. Imhotep invented the first Pyramid, the step-pyramid for the ruler named Djoser around 3000 BC. The video below is short animation of Imhotep based on the images from statues carved of Imhotep during his time. Imhotep discusses the Science and Art of pyramid building as various pyramids throughout time are displayed in the background. Voice over audio is from Manly P Hall's "Initiation of the Pyramid" and music audio is from Kabaka Pyramid's "Be Wise".
