Sobek Picture

Sobek is the Egyptian crocodile god. He has a very dual nature. He is seen as being both a dark god, and a creator. By some he is revered by others reviled. Some say he is an aspect of Horus, who took the form of a crocodile when searching for the scattered body parts of Osiris. Others say he is associated with Set, the rival of Horus.

I wanted to symbolically represent the dual nature of Sobek. The pyramid on the left side represents death/chaos/darkness, the pyramid on the right represents life/order/light.

The colors is based upon Egyptian color symbolism.
