They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
This, however, is its own tale. This right here is art at its best. Interpretation through image, you just feel it.

Extraordinary drawing... Definitely packs a powerful ancient Egyptian punch :D Anyways, I see that there are two (three?) constellations on the night sky that resembles Orion... Did you draw those based on the constellation's correlation with the Giza complex? :)

Really, thanks very much for sharing your drawing! :clap:

Thank you very much for your comment, actually, the stars were painted with absolute uncorrelation, but you make me think I could have been more precise about it, this would have been great !

I see... i really thought it's Orion (especially the one on top of the Pharaoh's head). The constellation at the right side of his head also quite similar to Canis Major near Orion, hence my conclusion :aww: But if it is, it'll be quite strange since the Orion's belt is missing its third star :)

It's a wonderful but perhaps fated coincidence ;)

Magnifique!
Même si ça fait un peu Stargate sur les bords XD
(surtout le film)

Il y a tout!
La coiffe des pharaons, car sans Nil, pas d'Egypte, et pas de pharaons
Les motifs de fleurs, et les entrelacs, représentant l'eau
Est-ce que le rouge de la cape représente le désert?
Par contre, j'ai pas trop compris l'oeil dans le cercle!

Non, vraiment, j'adooooore!
