Title: Jazz in the face of the Egyptian god Bisu
Surface: Canson drawing paper, Rough
Dimension: 18x24 inch
Bisu is an Ancient Egyptian deity worshipped as a protector of households, and in particular, of mothers and children and childbirth. Bes later came to be regarded as the defender of everything good and the enemy of all that is bad. Since he drove off evil, Bes also came to symbolize the good things in life - music, dance and sexual pleasure.
This piece was made for the Drawing Through show September 19th at the mammal gallery.
I intentionally left smudges and marks on Bisu because u;ultimately... he is actually a Egyptian dwarf, and dwarves are usually depicted as as dirty little guys and gals.
