ba ba black background


Egyptian firstborn mummy


First flight of the ba


The ba passes Ammit and Anubis weighing the heart

More “Death of the Firstborn Egyptians” scenes for Seder-Masochism. I’m using a plain black background in these scenes to suggest the dead are “inside” Death, but the Egyptian art I’m basing it on have light backgrounds, so it’s a bit of a stretch.

    If I recall correctly, the egyptians had an association with the colors black and red as the duality between their country’s black earth on the Nile floodplain and red earth of the desert wastes. Black might be a color of burial by that reasoning?

    Black is right.

    Maybe a set of apeps could frame somethng, a text/title separate from the action.

    YES. I’m watching the coming art with deep interest, and I’ve been eagerly waiting to see which Gods you would be placing in this work (since there are … a billion of them). Lord Anubis is my favourite, and I’m extremely happy to see Him here
