The sacred text in this work comes from an earlier time in pharaonic history than the previous painting, and was again supplied to me by my friend and iconographer Ptahmassu Nofra Uaa. It is an adapted version of Pyramid Text 570 of King MerenRa (Dynasty 6) from his upcoming book “The Book Of Utterances”: I have escaped my day of death, just as Setesh has escaped His day of death I have escaped my half months of death, just as Setesh has escaped His half months of death I have escaped my month of death, just as Setesh has escaped His month of death I have escaped my year of death, just as Setesh has escaped His year of death The portal structure is a render of the monumental tombstone of David Syme’s eldest son, John Herbert Syme, in Box Hill Cemetery (below). Much more on Syme the elder later.
