Ra: Rise and Fall by Thothhotep
Ra: Rise and Fall
The sun god Ra and his journey across the sky of day and night in his Day-bark and Night-bark is one of the fundamental aspects of ancient Egyptian myth. The belief concerning afterlife is also related to this Sonnelaufe. 
The sun rise as Hpr, which is written as a scarab in Egyptian. Then Ra sails across the sky for 12 hours. Midday is the moment when he is the strongest, manifesting as Ra. When he finally about to set to the west horizon, he becomes the god Atum, becoming old and weak. Then, the god travels  for another 12 hours in the Duat, the underworld. There, he has to defeat Appopis, the great snake. Then, in the deepest part of this dangerous world he meets Osiris and gains the power of regeneration from him. The priests on the ground observe the starry sky. Specifin stars will rise to the sky, marking the hours. Finally, he rises again at dawn, from the eastern horizon. 
It is problematic to depict Atum, for he could be represent by both white and red crown or ram.

The other works belongs to this series (there will be more!): 
Bible Bubble: Transfiguration by Thothhotep
Bible Bubble: Transfiguration
Transfiguration of Jesus is one of the most frequent seen motif in medieval and Renaissance art. Now, how about some new touch with tradition remained? The almond shape halo, typical symbol for this episode is still the essential part. Moses, is the grey bubble, the color of stone tablets; Elijah is red one, the color of the fire he brought from the heaven. Peter, James and John were less in order, for they were frightened by the Transfiguration of the Lord.

Bible Bubble: Ark (Pairs of animals) by Thothhotep
Bible Bubble: Ark (Pairs of animals)
Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. (Gen 7:2-3).
Bible Bubble: The Resurrection by Thothhotep
Bible Bubble: The Resurrection
Good Friday on a real Friday. We shall recall the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

"When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.  Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, 'Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?'But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. 'Don’t be alarmed,' he said. 'You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.'" (Mark 16)

I am going to have my third IELTS test tomorrow and I don't really know whether I can do better or worse than the last time (The last one was terrible enough, I was tore up by the writing and speaking tests). Yesterday, however, I spelled the plural of the potato "potatos". That is a really bad omen.

Anyway, as you can see, I am doing a series work about the food that changed the history. Up to now I have finished the orange, herring (they are already on the gallery now, comments are welcomed), potatoes (not "potatos" any more), black pepper and coffee. However, I am running out of ideas now and I sincerely hope that everyone who visit my page could enlighten me through the comments.

God bless the IELTS, that is all.
