“Amenhotep III, Egypt’s Sun King” is a digital picture created in Adobe Illustrator. It shows my favorite pharaoh in a formal pose standing beside his throne out in front of a temple complex. Amenhotep III was truly Egypt’s “sun king” and called himself the “dazzling Sun”. All the graphic elements of this picture, its architecture, clothing, jewelry, and colors are accurate to his time period.

The principal reason that Amenhotep is my favorite pharaoh is that during his reign Egypt experienced a virtual renaissance in all the arts and most of the artifacts that have survived from his time are simply magnificent. During his reign Egypt was at the height of its power and wealth.
