Thanks, Sekhmet! You are very kind.
The Egyptian-inspired slab is just my creation by combining a double Aten, wings found on other Deities, and adding eyeballs. I use a lot of ancient Egyptian themes and icons in my own art, but this time I really strayed from historic accuracy. The reason there are two sun disks is to relate it to our FSM, with the two meatballs, and the sun rays are obviously correlated with the noodly appendages. Why are the noodles so strait though? This could be seen as artistic interpretation, or that the noodles were still new and uncooked; this could be up for debate. The wings, a symbol for protection and found adorning many Egyptian Gods, give a more emphasis on the "flying" aspect of the FSM. I almost didn't add the eyestalks, but I thought it unified the imagery and made it more amusing. Besides, the ancient Egyptians used flying eyeballs
in their own art, so I didn't think I was straying too much from my original inspiration.
When I was in Egypt, I bought some papyrus sheets, so I would like to do some paintings on that, which should be fun. If anyone has ideas for imagery, I'd like to hear any suggestions.
I still need a title for my big soft-sculpture, if anyone has any input!
