This was the inspiration for the final adaptation for the new shot
this shot was a ghost ad for Mr Maguid Nassar and Mr Muhammad Diaa
to promote them self's as an art director and a copy writer
the whole concept was that the new Pharoahs with skills and talents are unemployed
and this relate to me and my friend who i shot as well
its very common these days in Egypt
so i decided to advertise for  myself with the new shot
posture reference
sun rays reference

Sobek the Pharaonic god of Nile fertility and protection from crocodiles

this was the statue i wanted to use but unfortunately  couldn't find any
