“Across my entire back I have a scene from the tomb of Nefertari in progress by Zac Scheinbaum. It's based on a 3,500-year-old image created during the reign of the Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II. The scene is of Imentet comforting Ra on his journey to rebirth. It's as much about the image as it is about the love story between Ramesses and Nefertari. Her name meant 'beautiful companion,' and Ramesses liked to call her 'The one for whom the sun shines.'”
