Portrait Of A Faiyum

Private Collection

PORTRAIT OF FAIYUM

Acrylic – Hot Press

This artwork was inspired by one of the painting I saw when in Paris, the original artwork was a Wax painting on wood. The artwork was a Funerary portrait of a young woman known as “Portrait of the Faiyum” Antinoe, Romano-Egyptian art II century AD.(?).

I love anything Egyptian and when I came across this I just loved the large eyes and detail. I have added my own twist to the side of this artwork and have written myself a affirmation around the artwork in Hieroglyphs… try and decipher this if you can?
