Postcards from Paradise - Egypt

4th Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh
2 wives
3 sons
1 daughter
possibly more
Ruled Egypt approximately 11 years
A pyramid builder
Responsible for building the Sphinx at Giza
in the image of his father
I have never been a fan of Egyptian art,
but Egyptian history fascinates me.
I had to try to draw Djedefre
(from a photo of a bust ruin
with his poor nose bashed)
He is beautiful to me
in pastel green.
