First of all let me tell you I'm not very fond of this kind of artwork, but ... there was a similar painted papyrus hanging on the wall of my hotel bedroom in Cairo and one night I dreamt about it, so I thought it was some kind of sign from the Egyptian Gods and got this one... :-)

Ibis and Desert Rose

The ibis is made of soapstone.
Desert rose is the name given to rosette formations of gypsum (gesso) and barite, with sand inclusions.
Both brought from the Atlas chain, in Marocco.
