I love all things Egyptian and traveled there in 1999. This mandala was inspired by a scarab amulet of King Tut. In Egyptian lore, pharaohs were carried off to the after life on a boat and in this case, it’s King Tut. The cobras represent protection. The Ankh represents the staff of life.
For this piece I used a minimal palette of colors: 3 shades of blue, 2 shades of yellow, 1 shade of red, purple and white. I love the challenge and fun of creating my own colors. I especially enjoy making gold using yellow & purple!
Mandala Message: “At all times, I choose peace.”
