Ra

Kneel heathens, for your god is the sun.

 

For the second round of Biocup I was up against Loysnuva: www.flickr.com/photos/131589536@N05/ where we were tasked with making something from B.C.E civilizations (so stuff like Babylon, Egypt, Persian Empire, etc) and I decided on making Ra, the Egyptian god of the sun. Ra is often depicted as having a hawks head with a snake encompassing a disk on top of his head. I thought that looked a bit place so that aspect of his made it's way into his staff which is disk shaped with two gold snake embellishments.

 

This MOC was kind of a risk for me given that I've never made a a humanoid figure on this sort of scale before, and it shows a bit. Given more time I probably would have shelved it for a couple of weeks and come back to it with a clearer head.
