Description
Painting made with acrylic on Egyptian handmade papyrus. The sign of the scarab appears very often in Egyptian hieroglyphs, statues, and sculptures. The scarab has been deified during Ancient Egypt as a symbol of resurrection. In this piece, it is represented as a car-toon character with bright colors and humanized features. The artist uses experimental media and techniques that challenge the traces of his identity and the superficiality of the contemporary world.
