Egypt



Sorry I haven't been around for a while but had major surgery, a long trip to the UK and a lot to catch up on.  Hopefully back in full swing now.

Found a wonderful painting of Cleopatra attributed to either  Leonardo da Vinci or one of his students.  I love the way she doesn't look like the normal almond eyed image of her.  My tag is a series of black and beige cardstock mats, a map of ancient Egypt printed on onion paper, the hieroglyphics for "Queen" and the image raised up on foam pads.

Thank you for looking and comments are always appreciated.  
Off to look at your work and leave some comments.
