Thesis : Thoth by kpelto-illustration

For my senior illustration Thesis project, I looked at Egyptian pictograms of dieties and interpreted them literally.

The tantric use of the phurba encompasses the curing of disease, exorcism, killing demons, meditation, consecrations (puja), and weather-making. The blade of the phurba is used for the destruction of demonic powers. The top end of the phurba is used by the tantrikas for blessings.

Tiny Horus toy by shoomlah.deviantart.com on @DeviantArt

EDIT: Whup, forgot the version with the detailing! At ’s encouragement, I finally put together a design for Patch Together- a tiny Horus, combining.

Анубис

Anubis was originally an Egyptian god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites. I really like the robotic design of this character as it moves away from most other conventions.
