Adopting Moses

Adopting MosesTuya, the Egyptian Queen who was the primary wife of Pharaoh Seti, has fished baby Moses up from the Nile River beside her palace. Her son, the prince Ramses II, gazes up with curiosity at the Middle Eastern infant that may become his adopted little brother (and eventual opponent over the freedom of the Hebrew people).

This scene grew from a doodle inspired by the Dreamworks animated film The Prince of Egypt, although the character designs are mostly my own with only a little influence from those in the movie. In the original Biblical account, I believe it is the Pharaoh’s daughter rather than his wife who takes in baby Moses.
