I had great fun working on a commission for an Egyptian Ankh combined with four requested elements. After researching the Ankh's meaning I am fascinated: Egyptian symbol of life, unification of male/female, reference to ancient Snake Goddesses, and more. So much material!

I've enjoyed searching a way to weave everything together in a work that unifies all of the requested elements compositionally, symbolically, thematically, metaphorically AND that will look good on the body it is destined for - because ultimately, it's intended as a tattoo! So exciting...

You can see the image much more clearly if you click on it to enlarge it.
