Pharao's Grave by TomPrante Pharao's Grave by TomPrante
Deep in the desert is the grave of an ancient egyptian king. To his honour two pyramids were built. One having stairs inside to get into the huge underground hall where his coffin is placed. The other pyramid has a hole on the top which illuminates the coffin. His grave was protected for hundreds of years and nobody except the holy defenders saw the grave and all its treasures.

I hope you like it. I will read every comment and appreciate every favourite. :) (Smile)

Interesting. Somewhat similar to the 'tomb of Osiris' (Campbell's Tomb) in Giza, which I imagine may have been an inspiration.

Fine observation! Anyway, Osiride tombs are usually like this, symbolizing the waters of the sea existed before the Creation, and the Primeval Mould that has risen first as the first soil… As Seth cut Osiris to many (42?) pieces to make it impossible to resurrect him, he had many tombs all over the Two Countries but very few has remained. The Osireion at Abydos is one of them, with similar arrangement. That is a magical place and a real treat for the Egypt-fan like me ;)

I am sure the grave is a sacred place. There are canals connecting it to sacred lake, so the burial grounds always remain cleansed. It is also protected by two deities. During the day, when the Sun is high and the desert burns, the vengeful goddess Sekhmet will seek out any intruders to slice their throats and drink their blood. And during the night, when the Moon illuminates the tomb, the watchful goddess Bast will send her predators to attack the raiders from the dark.

Great artwork, reminds me of Tomb Raider since I'm a big fan of Lara Croft... Brought me back to my childhood. Love the mix of cool and warm tones, beautifully balanced...

EDIT: Just found out you need a membership. Sorry!

Sorry to be a bother, but may I ask how you put images at the bottom of the description that link to the deviation? I've tried looking at a few tutorials, but none say how exactly to do so. Thanks!
Also, beautiful work as always! =P

This is a grand and awe-inspiring view onto the scene. With the wonderful sense of scale and distances, plus the effect of the light finding its way in from high above, you've really captured the sense of stillness and age. Lovely work on the design of the chamber and the altar, and the detailed design of the sarcophagus are fantastic. (Much better than the ones for my old Lotus Notes password. ;))

I've played the original Tomb Raiders and the reboot one they did for PS3 but I wasn't a fan of that one at all. I only ever played the arcade version of Temple of Doom which is hard as hell to get through. :XD:

If you love Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones you should pick up the Uncharted series. It's very much like those games. You hunt for treasure, fight bad guys of all sorts and usually have to solve mysteries that have mystical and horror elements to them. The stories are very well written and the graphics are beautiful. I highly recommend the series. :)

No problem :D For someone like you that loves atmospheric scenery and settings I think you would enjoy Uncharted. I think you can get the first three games for PS3 for pretty cheap now and the newest one is coming out for PS4 soon. :iconnatedrakeplz:

I haven't gotten a PS4 yet to play it. I have to save my cash for a while so it will be a while until I play it. So no spoilers please. :)

I've played the previous 3 games so I can talk about those.

Maybe you could pretend to be the ancient kind reborn in a new body. This could convince them to give you all the treasures.

This is gorgeous, absolutely stunning. I love the water, and the way that the stairs emerge out of it. I love the composition of this piece, you've really got my eyes enjoying something new every time I look at it again. My favorite part is the subtle hint of other pillars in the background. Thanks for uploading, have a nice day!
