Yet words and pictures are now worthless… GODS are HAPPY; I CAN START TO FORGET YOU ALL!
So here we are… the end of this.
When I posted the topic.. I knew little about all this. Last week though… I took the trip to Egypt and got to know this wonderful and history/concept heavy place.
I’m sorry that the drawings some of you have submitted are not really to the usual CHOW quality levels. The stories are amazing.
Taken to the poll are only few.
i’ve seen pictures o Horrus in your drawings and not Amun Ra – the guy with the sun on his head.. it’s not RA.. but that is not important.
Last night in Egypt… wind was going on so strong under the hundreds of doors in my hotel, that it sounded like all the pharaohs were crying. I could not check in the morning if all the markings on the tombs have changed or not.
I had a sick nightmare that night.
Now… let’s see… who is the one closer… to lose his reality? .

Bataka Rai was always an introverted man. He preferred to sit in some secluded corner of the courtyard and dream up imaginary worlds rather than partake of the real world. He fashioned wondrous gods and monsters and he loved each of his creations dearly. They were like his children. Eventually, after years of immersing himself in his art, his creations began to become more real than the people around him. He started to believe that the world he was living in was an illusion and that the real world was that where his gods dwelt – the afterlife. He spent years perfecting this world; fashioning creatures for it, giving them lives names and personalities. Then, when it was perfect he finally let himself become a part of it.
The son of Djoser's favorite Hem Netjer (a common priest title), Bataka Rai was born during the third dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Egypt. The child was gifted with an uncanny imagination, and his father often drew upon the lore his son created to entertain the pharaoh, after reciting the sacred words to him. As a child, Bataka Rai would draw on the dirt -for papyrus was reserved for official documents and religious texts- by the temple doors as he would await the return of his father from his daily duties. It was here that Djoser, the pharaoh, came to recognize the image the child drew from that of his dreams: a face brilliant and magnificent and holy, Ra himself.
Djoser brought the child into his home, and treated him as his own son, but the boy who was shy felt ever estranged from the luxurious life that surrounded him. Throughout his education, Bataka Rai concentrated all his efforts in putting his dreams to papyrus, now readily available to him. During his artistic education he became acquainted with Imothep, the great architect. Imothep would become the forger of Bataka Rai's dreams. Bataka Rai the designer, would set down what would become the face of Egypt, and Imothep would see to it that it was built. While they became fast friends; Bataka Rai also felt their differences keenly. Imothep was outgoing and socially inclined, and he eventually became recognized and highly awarded for his work. Bataka Rai, who tended to be taciturn, became arrogant and bitter, and remained widely unknown. Slowly he withdrew from the real world and submerged himself into his own, a world filled with fantastic creatures; beloved friends who were always there at the merest summoning thought.
Devoted to the memory of Bataka Rai.
In his prime many people saw Bataka Rai as a visionary. He was highly valued by royalty, not only did earning their respect, but also a hefty profit from his services. As his reputation grew, so did his fantasy, commissioning numerous tailors and craftsmen to dress him in outfits shown carved into stone.
His futuristic look was considered very risque by many, and some disapproved of his feminine inclinations. He created such a wonderous facade and felt the need to conceal his real identity, spending days at a time working in solitude, accompanied only by his cats. He began to fear ever letting anyone get close to him, for they would realise he's nothing more than an everyday man. Fame was not what he expected and fear soon turned to paranoia.
Alongside his corpse lay a bounty of carvings and rows of garments. In his honour sprung a new Egypt.
This image depicts Bataka Rai at its best. At 18 he has just finished his master piece, the image of Ra, he had created 5 years ago. This piece made for the Pharaoh's tomb marks the wide acceptance of Ra, the Sun God. This god is now fashionable and everyone wants to possess the symbols created by Bataka.
Leading a good life, he creates Ra images and Symbols, in walls, jewelery and clothes. He is one of the most important people bellow the Pharaoh himself.
He now starts to understand how easy it is to manipulate everyone around him and he is happy because he gets what he wants, but he starts to think how futile and stupid people are, and that bothers him.
20years old Bataka Rai was very attractive young man which loved design and girls (like me). Than he started thinking how to be greatest lover in Egypt. All pretty egyptian girls were maniacs to fashion, they wanted to have beautiest clothes,make-up, jewelry and everything what can Bataka could designed. Than he redesigned his first sketch of Ra and make from him sex-idol, all girls loved cool god with big bird ..... sorry, with big bird head. But he wasn´t real , than the second coolest guy in egypt was his creator Bataka. Then He became greatest lover as he want. He and his girl fanclub founded the most popular fashion agency in the acient Egypt.
