Photographer's Note

An obelisk is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top. These were originally called "tekhenu" by the builders, the Ancient Egyptians.

The Greeks who saw them used the Greek 'obeliskos' to describe them, and this word passed into Latin and then English - wiki
