Overview

Awe is an emotion comparable to wonder.[1] However whilst we say that we feel wonder at the rainbow we do not say we feel in awe of the rainbow. In general awe is directed at objects considered to be more powerful than the subject. For example, a commonly identified object that inspires awe is the [Great Pyramid of Giza.
