The Awakening of Anubis
A small group of treasure hunters break into an ancient and forgotten tomb in search of treasure that have only been dreamed of. There they find more gold and jewels than all of them combined thought existed. Mistaking this for the real treasures that remain hidden they start filling their sacks with as much as they can carry but in doing so they awaken the keeper of the tomb, Anubis, and those that have been curse to live in it for eternity. No one leaves with the gold.
The symbology for this piece, for me, is that the tomb resembles this world and the tunnel is the way out to the next world. The mummies/undead are those of us that worship material wealth in this world. The treasure hunters will soon see that one cannot take material possessions beyond the grave and that if they become a worshipper of the material world then they too will suffer the same curse that befell the mummies, they will die (spiritually). We come to this world as a blank canvas, we have experiences and gain certain attributes and qualities through those experiences. These are the only things we take with us when we leave. These are the real treasures.
This image took a lot out of me. But I think in the end it was worth it. It borrows heavily from eastern/middle eastern philosophy. It symbolises that moment in time when a Revelation is born into this world. When just for an instance “heaven” and earth meet and there is an explosion of life that resonates outwards long after that moment has passed.
That's it from me. Good luck all that have entered. Some truly beautiful art out there. Keep it up.
