“In the hand of the goddess”

Divine and mortal
Fingers entwined, dark through light
Mother and daughter

A photo taken inside the tomb of the Egyptian queen Nefertari. It shows the arms of two women with their hands clasped. The arm on the left belongs to Queen Nefertari and is painted a light brown; she also has a tattoo on the inside of her arm of the Eye of Ra. The arm on the right belongs to Hathor and is painted gold.
