Mystic abstract painting on canvas. The painting contains elements from the Bible and ancient Egyptian mythology. At the center of the painting, Jacob's ladder can be seen. A clue for the human ability to shift and transform between different phases. Above, the eye of Horus is watching from above. The eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power, and good health. The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts. The symbol was intended to protect the pharaoh in the afterlife and to ward off evil. Ancient Egyptian and Middle-Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on their boats.
