"As to deserving, know that the gift of heaven is free;
this gift of Knowledge is so great that no effort whatever could hope to 'deserve' it."

This piece originated from a photo I took of Ankh Takelot's sarcophagas, which resides at Pyramid Hill Park. It is estimated that Ankh Takelot made his passage into the eternal sometime between 944 B.C. and 732 B.C. The hieroglyphics are prayers for safe passage. To look at this piece and see how the wood and ink have held up so brilliantly is an inspiration.
(The addition of the tree is mine.)
