Sphinx at Tea

August 8, 2017 by Tom

This painting was done by an artist named “Sandara”. I thought it looked very elegant and was definitely a new take on the Egyptian Sphinx. The frame is made from mild steel angle and flat stock, welded, ground smooth and painted flat black. I hand cut the side accent pieces first from steel flat stock, then a bit smaller from heavy copper and bolted them to the frame. I added three small figures to the bottom, Thoth, on the left, seated Anubis on the right, and the dog Anubis, lying down in the center. At the top is a blue ceramic Scarab beetle, from China, and I modified some brass architectural pieces, mounted on either side of the Scarab, and painted them gloss black.
