Mine is a heart of carnelian, crimson as murder on a holy day. Mine is a heart of cornel, the gnarled roots of a dogwood and the bursting of flowers. I am the broken wax seal on my lover's letters. I am the phoenix, the fiery sun, consuming and resuming myself. I pace the halls of the underworld. I knock on the doors of death. I wander into the fields to stare at the sun and lie in the grass, ripe as a fig. The souls of the gods are with me. They hum like flies in my ears. I am I. I will what I will. Mine is a heart of carnelian, blood red as the crest of a phoenix. -- The Heart of Carnelian, Egyptian Book of the Dead

Love your Egyptian mythology series! The images remind me alot of an Egyptian-themed tarot deck I used to own, but can't seem to locate--I think I may have loaned it to someone... I forget....

anyway, love the rich colors and the gold outlines of the characters add to their divinity. This one, Sekhmet, reminds me of Princess Leia in her "metal bikini" slave outfit after she was captured by Jabba the Hutt! :)

How can a lion goddess marry with a human-lik god? Isn't it disgusting? And engender human gods? Humans themselves are weak and filthy. Why Sekhmet needs them? I don't get the twisted mitology

Excellent work as always - I'm particularly liking that abdomen and the textures on the furry parts of the picture.
My only complaint is really just a matter of taste - I think it would be kinda cool if the kittens had been fully grown male lions (particularly if the scale was maintained).
Still great work though.

Thanks! :D I see what you mean about the lions, that would be cool :nod: They're cubs because she's the protectress of children ;) But if I do anymore pics with her there will be lions... oh yes...
