I’ll be showing several works within the Egyptology display including my soft sculptures inspired by¬† two of the female Khener dance troupe of the Old Kingdom 2663-2195 BC. The Dancers, Hekenu and Iti are commemorated in the tomb of a man named Nikaure. Celebration of specific dancers was unheard of in Ancient Egypt which is what inspired me to make my own interpretation of them.

Here I’m holding one of my soft sculptures in my studio at Cross Street Arts, Standish.
