In the course of the design development of a project in the office, a bit of quick research on the Egyptian Palm Capital was called for: a few images, so as to direct the painting of a stylized Palm Capital by our interior decorator, in our case to be realized in a Art-Deco manner.
As, in the original context, the top surfaces of the capital are modeled not just through pigment, but also three-dimensionally, yet ours could not be, and also to give our painter some creative scope, a broader collection of Egyptian Capitals was provided, with some of the designs painted onto an un-modeled conical surface, usually of the Open Papyrus Type.
What follows are some reflections occasioned by that initial set of images. Enjoy!
