About This Image

This golden Egypt print is courtesy of a ridiculously early bus to Abu Simbel. I would love to say that’s just how dedicated I am to catching the golden light of morning, but it’s really down to being how one gets to Abu Simbel from Aswan by road. For security concerns, the cars and buses heading to the ancient Nubian monument of Abu Simbel do it as a caravan up and back. I gather somewhat by design, it means the light on the incredible temple for Ramses The Great is just perfect moments on arrival.

In a way this golden Egypt view felt like a glimpse back to Egypt’s golden age of pharaohs. And Ramses II certainly fits that mold. Thousands of years later, he is still the only pharaoh who was every styled as “The Great.” In fact he had a number of appellations which included Ramses The Builder. Reigning for nearly 70 years, he was ruling the grandchildren of his original subjects when he passed. And as apparently a wise ruler, it seems to have been a reign that was became an almost mythological golden past of Egypt remembered and written about throughout the ages after his death.

Getting to Abu Simbel, one of his greatest temples may not have been the easiest trek but the reward was obvious as you can tell from this golden Egypt print. The ancient ruins are stunning in any light, but in that golden dawn glow, it was truly a not-to-be-missed part of the Egyptian experience.

Have you also stood before these great colossi of Ramses The Builder? Or perhaps you simply love the history of ancient Egypt seen in golden detail here? I hope you will take a few moments to share what you find most striking about this golden Egypt print?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
