One of the Reverends in my Temple, the House of Netjer, decided to initiate an “Art a Week” challenge to last until the end of the Kemetic year. That is, from now until the end of July. Each week, the participants are given a one-word prompt, and from that create a relevant artwork.
This week, our prompt was “desert.” I went the obvious route, and chose to make a piece for Set. It took me about three days to complete.
I decided to depict Set in the center of a desert valley, as His idiosyncratic sha-creature. He is shown with two knives in His forepaws, standing atop a row of bound and decapitated enemies, whose blood pools into a lake beneath them. The meanings of these symbols will be explained in greater detail below.
