Looking for an accurate or artistic rendering of an Egyptian object, monument or landscape? Or a representation of a loved one?
If you fancy an ink drawing, a watercolour on paper for your incoming publication, an oil painting on canvas as a gift or a decoration for your home, Meretseger Books would like to introduce Czech artist Jiri Kucera, whose skills we greatly admire.
The cobra-shaped goddess Meretseger (whose name means "she who loves silence" in Ancient Egyptian) was the patron of the artisans and workers of the village of Deir el-Medina, who built and decorated the great royal and noble tombs of Thebes during the New Kingdom. The goddess was geographically connected with Al-Qurn, the pyramid-shaped peak overlooking the Valley of the Kings, one of her epithets being "Lady of the Peak".
