Description (in English): 

Steeped in Egyptian history, mythology, religion and art, Coverley imagines a work in which words count as images and images as words, time has two complementary dimensions of linear progression and eternal return, inscriptions are not merely tokens for words but powerful sepells capable of deciding one's fate for eternity, and the individual subject merges into the archetypes of eternal gods and godesses.
