So, we have this stairway down to the basement. Boring white walls. We have some posters up in it, but we wanted something more... personal. So I've started a long project to decorate it with archaeological art. One wall will be Egyptian, one wall will be Mesoamerican, and the ceiling will be Celtic and pre-Celtic British Isles. And I will work my poetry into each.

I finished my first panel the other day, on the Egyptian side. It's my rendering of the "Lions of Yesterday and Tomorrow" from the "Book of Going Forth by Day" (aka the Book of the Dead), with my poem of the same name.











Next, something Mesoamerican...

WOW! Amazing! (no other words come to mind, I'm just in awe) *grin*

Re: Didn't your parents tell you not to write on the walls?

Yes, they did tell me. But now I can ignore them. Part of the fun of being an adult. ;-)

And, thanks!

You are a pearl beyond price.

aw gee shucks thanks!

WOW!!!! When we buy a house I would LOVE to do something like that, but alas I have NO artistic ability...

Kudos to you, You ROCK!!!

That looks absolutely beautiful. I love the idea, and that stairwell is going to look awesome when you are done....except for the traffic jams of people stopping dead to read and look at your work when they should be going downstairs! :)

It looks great! And I was just thinking about the Tarot paintings at The Inn this weekend.
