Nephthys (Nebthet)

     Ink pen and colored pencil on acid free paper, 17.8 x 25.3 cm (7 x 10 in.),
     spiral rings removed after the scan, and slight refinements:

Continuing along in the Epagnomel Days, after Isis' birthday, it is now Nephthys' birthday (aka Nebthet).


For inspiration, I've taken from a statue at the Brooklyn museum, # 55.121.5, but my photo wasn't in the angle I needed. So I found a better angle at the museum's website. I also took a clue or two from a statue at the Louvre. However, I didn't want the arm poses on either of those models. I remembered many of the statues of Sekhmet have her posed with the papyrus topped scepter, so I found the nicest, one at the Turin museum, from which to draw.
