Much of my inspiration and creativity stems from tapping into my inner core, but there are times that I feel a need to immerse myself in other worlds, other times and other culture’s creative endeavours…. This urge brought me to the Metropolitan Museum of Art recently.
I always try and see the new exhibits at the Met, but time and again I am drawn to the Egyptian wing. I feel deeply connected to Egyptian culture and am amazed by their storytelling through imagery. The snap I took below really got me. Look at the mic-like item in the male figure’s hand. Then take a look at the top right corner. The hieroglyphs look like aircrafts and the microphone indicates that they were in communication. If this is not evidence that the Egyptians were a technologically advanced society, I don’t know what is.
