The Friday Illo theme of "Perspective" wasn't inspiring me very much. I looked at the other artists' contributions and had no clue. So I decided I'd skip this week. Then I meandered Flicker for a drawing idea, ANY drawing idea. I ended up at my favorite Egyptian art pool, and it wasn't very long before I saw the perfect thing to illustrate 'perspective'.

'Macloo', (aka Mindy McAdams), explained "In temples built by the Greeks (like this one), the capitals of the columns differ from one another. In the older, true Egyptian temples, the capitals all match."
