This collection has been inspired by the paintings, carvings, pectorals, precious objects and jewelry of ancient Egypt, the mythology and the many stories which have been uncovered by these astonishing discoveries.
ODE TO ANUBIS Reclining on her engraved plinth, the street dog embodies Anubis. She rests still as a statue while worshippers adorn her. A crook and flail are placed against her sides, while a celestial bed in the form of the goddess Hathor is laid at her feet. Painted stone panels create a temple shape to surround her. She will weigh hearts for levity, and guide souls in the afterlife.
THE HERALDS OF HORUS Pearlescent wings glistening in the sunset, the Egyptian Geese proclaim their presence. They gather the birds of the city to join their cry, filling the skies and surrounding the burning sun. They are offered gifts of golden reeds, winged amulets and elaborate carvings. From their aerial perspective they are all-seeing, all-protecting.
BASTETS BOUNTY Regal in her posture, the young feline is positioned atop a carved pedestal. As the townsfolk notice her, they appear to melt in her piercing green gaze. She is Bastet, kind protector, fearsome huntress. They bring gifts of jewelry, riches and fruit, mummified fish and golden amulets. She will defend women and children; she will ward off evil spirits.
