Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Near East, mythology, goddesses, monsters, etc.

I am only a lay student in these areas, so take what I say with a grain of salt!

I am also ikhet-sekhmet.livejournal.com. My reverse harem can be found at aegyopoisoned.tumblr.com.

More fun with bloodletting, as the BM explains: “The king holds a flaming torch over his wife, who is pulling a thorny rope through her tongue. Scrolls of blood can be seen around her mouth.” I wonder if these reliefs had the same effect as Egyptian depictions of pharaoh making offerings - if you write it, and/or illustrate it, it becomes an event that occurs continually: the king is always making offerings.
