Artist's Description

Ra – supreme god of the sun holds shem the symbol of eternity topped by ankhs in his claws. Based on a pectoral from Tutankhamun’s tomb. Work on this piece was complicated by the fact that the original I was working from had been incorrectly rendered. (A black and white photograph that had been hand coloured in an old text book my grandmother bought me when I was a lot younger than I am now). Got there in the end.
Ra is easy to identify because he has a sun disc on his head (Horus does not and is often show wearing the double crown in his role of patron of the living king)

Date: 2012
Media: Sennelier paint on papyrus and a good degree of sheer insanity.
