Artisans - Stonemason by MJWilliam Artisans - Stonemason by MJWilliam
The background was referenced from a fragment of a wall of Luxor Temple (Luxor, Egypt), showing Ptah, Hathor, and Imhotep receiving offerings from Ptolemy IV. Imhotep was chief architect to the Egyptian pharaoh Djoser (reigned c.2630 - c.2611 BC), and is the first architect we know by name. He was responsible for the world's first known monumental stone building, the Step Pyramid at Sakkara.

Mixed media on Bristol, 11X14". Closeups: www.mariawilliam.net/stonemaso…

She looks like if you disagree with her work, you will get hit over the head....the female has a degree of "can kick butt" vibe about here. I love all the little details that you've added in... :heart:

A beauty not to be trifled with. 'Ware the hammer. :)

I really like the way the snake on her shoulder appears embossed into her arm, neither like a tattoo or an ornament. It looks part of her.
