Priest in Prayer
Hand-patinated reproduction on a black wooden base (for the resin model). Mould made from an impression of the original work.
Despite the great diversity in the forms of divinity, there is, in reality, only one purpose : it is to express the immense complexity of the creator. However, the Egyptian cult, which was celebrated in great mystery in numerous sanctuaries, shows a similarity in the rituals that clearly proves the identity of the forms of the demiurge. Whether this sculpture is of a priest or a donor, the small worshipper in bronze reflects the fervour of the ancient Egyptians, "the most religious of all peoples". His head is shaven, perhaps for ritual purity. He is wearing a simple skirt with a pleated front flap.
