Looking at this revived the image in my mind from a book I read called 'Memoirs of Cleopatra'. It's an amazing book written through the eyes of Cleopatra herself. The author studied Queen Cleopatra for 40 years very in depth, 99% of the book is fact while she used very minor details to make up. And funny part is before Cleopatra made the snake bite her, I imagined her holding it just like this.

Absolutely fantastic!

The detail is great (it must have taken forever to color Anubis' jewelry). But what I like most is the deep, serious expression between the jackal-god and the cobra.

I heard somewhere that white symbolized death in ancient Egypt. However, don't take my word for it because I just did a brief Google search and couldn't find anything to prove me right :( Well, if for some reason white did at one point represent death in Egyptian religion, you certainly picked the right color for the cobra. I LOVE the idea of a white cobra.

In the Egyptian pantheon, Anubis is my favorite male; Isis and Nephthys are my favorite females :)

Still can't get enough of your work. That said, I like the intense look on the anubis' face. It really is a staring contest. Most of all, I love the muscle structure and then the scales on the cobra. I could go on forever, which seems to be a common thing for me when looking at your art. ^^

P.S. I really need to stop being lazy and clear out my inbox of new deviations long before 3 pages end up coming up. XD I'm just so lazy.
