Horus' Eye by CrazyScorpio Horus' Eye by CrazyScorpio
This is the complete version of the design for surj.


Basically...if you know ANYTHING about Egyptian Mythology, there is a god named Horus. He is represented by the hawk in this picture. Horus was the god of the skies and his eyes were often used to represent the sun and the moon.

Such a charming design. Most definitely unique and distinguised (if not disturbing). It's an interesting combination of shapes that have been fused together in a bizarre yet fluid bond. The result is a twisted effigy that feels as though it should be the emblem for......for.....erm.....'Chickens Rights to be Seen as Individuals'????? actually I will have to think about what the image could commercially represent. The design is so diverse, I can't initially place it in any true category or place. I respect the individualism of the piece, a very surreal idea that has been transformed successfully into an overall collective of impossibly joined objects (both organic and none organic).

However as a tattoo design, it's marvellous. It will certainly be a challenge for the tattooist. You are very talented.

Thanks for the comment, however I suggest you take a look a what a chicken looks like: [link]
And then also what a hawk looks like:

This is in fact a depiction of a the god horus, since the title of the piece is Horus' eye.

Touche. If I have struck a nerve then I apologise. The chicken reference was a throw away comment. I will admit that I wrote the comment without reading your description first. I have since read it, and bow my head in shame.

I did not actually intend disrespect, I actually liked the image alot, enough even to add it as a favourite. I will also confess that my knowledge on the anatomy of birds is incredibly limited.

So don't take offence, I admire the mechanics of the design. The way you have connected the elements of the picture, is what struck me the most about it.
