Merymose

Another older drawing .. in fact I think this is about ten years old .. pencil on cartridge paper. It's the ancient egyptian Merymose who was the Visier to the Pharoah Amenhotep 111. It was drawn completely freehand and I think it is about twelve inches tall - I still have the original drawing - it's one that I will always keep. I like the timeless look in his eye - I think it's a rather serene portrait. I'd like to go and visit him in the museum - but I doubt I'll ever get to Egypt - I think he is still in Egypt! :)
