Egyptian (this week's word at Every Inchie Monday) is one of those words I can never spell correctly. I always get the 'g' and the 'y' and the 'p' mixed up for some reason - maybe because they are all 'below the line' letters.
This week's word was tough because there is so much to choose from. I always loved studying Ancient Egypt in school. At one point I even wanted to be an archaeologist, until I realized how much time I'd be spending out in the sun. That was before Indiana Jones told us 90% of all archaeology is done in the library. I remember traveling by train to Toronto to see the King Tut exhibit the first time round back when I was in university. So here is my rendition of the iconic Egyptian eye of Horus. You can't see all the sparkle in the drawing, but it's there.
And I've always thought hieroglyphs were the neatest thing. So pretty and yet so meaningful. Here is my version of the letter K, for Kia, in Egyptian gold.
I couldn't fit it in the cartouche, so I did that separately.
Walk like an Egyptian this week.
