  1. OF COMING FORTH BY DAY - THE TRANSFORMATIONS
    2019, drawings, black fineliner, 35 x 50 cm,

    Blind countour drawings based on vignettes from ‘The Book of the Dead’, an ancient Egyptian funerary text, depicting the deceased and their journey into the afterlife. I use these extracts and hymns to come to an understanding of how the saved soul is raised and transformed like an eternal spirit, just like that of God. 

     

  2. A head-rest

  3. I have come, and I have slain for thee him that attacked thee.

  4. The deceased holding a sail, symbolic of air.

  5. Of avoiding slaughter

  6. Of drinking water

  7. Of protecting the heart

  8. The release of the soul
