I was thinking about the rise of political power when I designed these figures.  I suppose that any title about an ancient Egyptian god couldn’t be anything but a conversation alluding to political power.  In this case, the potential danger of Trump politics was on my mind and entirely informed the direction of the work.   
 
Finding the right shape, scale, and overall design for the figures came together in the process of working with the clay itself.  I was searching for simplicity and abstraction to easily communicate the idea of signals and danger.
