Aten with aura by Psyfire-Satra
Aten with aura
Taken November 2011. Tomb of Meryre, Tell el Amarna, Egypt. Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and daughters offering to an unusual depiction of the sun disk. One theory is this image was inspired by a morning where the sun was surrounded by rings formed of ice crystals in the air.
Antique 'antiquities' by Psyfire-Satra
Antique 'antiquities'
How old are they? Look pretty authentic, don't they? Faking antiquities to sell to tourists  - and archaeologists! - was a very lively business in Victorian Egypt. Some forgers became quite famous for the quality of their work, and more than one piece in famous museums has since been proven to be a fake. These pieces are left over from the Victorian era, and are works of art compared to most of what is offered for sale today. Since they are not real antiquities, they are legal to purchase. Hassan gave me the Eye of Horus pendant as a birthday present in 2014; I made a necklace out of it to wear on the latest trip, and some of his family thought I was wearing an actual antiquity.
Glowing alabaster by Psyfire-Satra
Glowing alabaster
Tutankhamon had several oil lamps in his tomb carved from alabaster. That gave me the idea to put some electric candles (for safety) inside some of my Egyptian alabaster vases. I think they look pretty cool!
Looking across to royal suite by Psyfire-Satra
Looking across to royal suite
Taken November 2014. North Palace, Tell el Amarna, Egypt. Looking across to Queen Meritaten's rooms. The room lined with stone slabs was her bathing chamber.
