I used to love ancient Egyptian history in middle school so i decided it would be a good time to remember things and to also learn new things while drawing Fareeha! It’s a really rough comic but I thought it’d be fun to imagine Angela dabbling in more dangerous sciences and finding herself in front of an ancient version of Fareeha
Urartian Bronze Belt with Winged & Double-Headed Hybrid Creatures, 8th-6th Century BC
This bronze belt bears the strange images of winged sphinx-like and siren-like creatures with the heads of humans, horses, lions and other creatures. Some have the tail of a fish or bird while others have a ram’s head on the tail.
Two Persian bracelets of gold and turquoise with terminals in the shape of birds. While the bracelets are modern, dating to the 19th-20th centuries, the style reflects the jewelry of the Seljuks, a Turkish dynasty which ruled a vast empire in Western Asia during the 11th to 13th centuries CE.

“On the reverse side of the palette we see the square shapes of seven fortresses. Above each is a symbol of a god or goddess, such as a hawk, lioness, and scorpion; all are symbols of power and kingship, and each holds a hoe, performing the foundation ceremony for the town or fortress.”
