One of my biggest passions is Ancient Egypt and this is one of a series I've been doing of some of the many Gods and Goddess'. This is Horus at his main Temple in Edfu. All the costume, jewelry and backgrounds in these paintings are based on real places and objects. 24x33, acrylic on illustration board.

I was just reading about Edfu in Zechariah Sitchin's Wars of Gods and Men and there's this story that Ra gives Horus the city as a reward for winning the first battle as the gods retake Egypt starting from the sourth and ending in the north. The Egyptians called the place Behutet

You are my hero. The detail here is sure something wonderful, you can almost feel the heat and the sand. Oooooo if only I had monies... this would be on my wall. (Silly girl I is, I'm sure you would never part with it.)

It's weird to me that Horus eyes seem to show some kind of apprehension, when the rest of his stance looks like, "bring it on." I don't know. Might just be me. Still like your work, though.
