Tutankhamon's Throne finished

And here it is - finally finished. Tutankhamon's Throne - 70 x 70 cm oil painting on Ampersand Board. This took me 350 hours to finish.

So many people helped me finish this piece - I wish to mention late Bob Partridge of the Ancient Egypt Magazine as one. He kindly gave me permission to use his photo as reference, and I was able to make the detailed drawing for this painting based on his photo.

Another source deserving thanks is the Werner Forman Archives. I was able to finish the finer details of this painting using their photo, which they kindly gave me permission to use.

This painting is for sale at the Villa Royal's "Ancient Egypt" exhibition in Sastamala, Finland, from 18th February onwards.
