Illustration Friday (Myth)

Ammut ('aemit)

This is the painted version of a posting for the 31 Creature Bow Ties. 
To reiterate what was said earlier. I find this amalgamation fascinating.  
Ammut is comprised on the three man eating animals in Egypt, of the head 
of a crocodile the torso of a lion and the hind end of a hippopotamus. 
It is the soul eater in Egyptian mythology.

Oh I love him. Full of bounce...of on an adventure I think. Reminds me of my favourite...Maurice Sendak.

Very kind words. I am humbled.
