Royal Procession in the Barkal Temple Complex:
23.5" 15.5" Ink, pencil, and water color on paper

The work is a reconstruction attempt of Gebel Barkal as a cultural and an architectural site of historical value. The work depicts a boat procession, which is an annual ceremony practiced in Kush in celebration of a deity. The deity object, which is usually hidden from the public by white curtains, used to be moved in a ceremonial barge from its home temple by priests to visit other temples.
