Chinese Egyptian Portrait

Chinese Egyptian

I wanted to mix the ancient Egyptian and Chinese cultures with this quick portrait. This character is probably an Egyptian maiden who was given over to the Emperor of China as a trophy wife or concubine. And given ancient China’s dubious record on women’s rights, especially when compared to Egypt’s, it’s no wonder she looks less than enthusiastic about the arrangement.
