Photo composites “ Ancient Egyptian motifs”

Recently I have started to experiment with photo compositing, aka photo manipulation ….

As usual ancient Egypt is my main theme … (as if I can help it .. haha)

I have incorporated different motifs from ancient Egyptian mythology and spirituality in my photo artwork.

Defying time …
Gold burial mask of Egyptian King Psusennes I (1047–1001 BC)

Mummy – Day of counting the years …

Hope you will find this new experience interesting …

Tell me in the comments if I should post more photos like that.

  1. Dear PIP,
    the Westerners have destroyed indirectly through ISIS in Irak and Syria valuable cultural heritage, You may not forget that ISIS and Al-Qaida were created for their insidous policy for the Middle East by the USA. Or don’t You know this?

  2. Thank you for sharing these beautiful works of art. – I lived in Cairo for about 1 year in 1989-90 and my (Japanese) wife and I became quite fascinated with ancient Egyptian culture as we could see it in the Egyptian Museum and in Giza and Saqqara. I wish all the Egyptian antiquities that were stolen by foreign powers could be returned to their land of origin. Both my wife and I liked many aspects of today’s Egypt as well. Unfortunately we were not able to travel much in the country as I was too busy with my job and we tended to be short of money (the company I worked for wasn’t doing well).

      Just look what ISIS is doing to ancient monuments in Iraq and in other Islamic countries!
      Only for the West securing lots of relics, Muslims would have destroyed them.

      In a violent rampage through a museum in Mosul, Islamic State militants knocked statues to the floor, using sledgehammers and even a jackhammer to reduce ancient artifacts and some replicas — representing idols that past cultures worshipped — to rubble.
