What a grand idea to present a very beautiful symbolic reference to the recent events in Egypt! Hope that this is a resurrection of the spirit of Osiris for the better in that country. Love the display and arrangement of the various allusive objects. Thank you for the clue. Well done again, Gary!

A sumptuous image, Gary. A veritable feast for the eyes. Three seconds to take: three days to assemble and compose. I must say, that new camera with its low light performance was made for your work.
Best wishes,

Thankyou Tim- I made the spectacles from scratch, they are based on early examples, a kind of hybrid between apprentice masterpiece frames ( which were rarely used) and the more basic types, often tied on, used before the introduction of side attachments to fit over the ears.
Cheers, Gary
