Cardona-Hine's Horus Museum Egyptian Painting
Click to enlarge image(s)
Horus is the final painting of Cardona-Hine's series of mythic Egyptian paintings.

In the myth, Isis begets Horus, a hawk, as the god-child of her union with Osiris. The artist chose to paint a hummingbird instead of a hawk as a more benign image representing the spirit rather than a predator bird.

The silver paint layered behind, within and over the deep green shimmers as one's eyes move over the canvas, similar to the whir or a hummingbird's wings. A very large painting, measuring 91 x 85, it is truly impressive in an environment that provides it space enough.
