IV 19

Don't forget to vote for Malaak!

What's that in Kesep's ears?? you may be wondering. Here's a close-up:

Just a detail I picked up while working on our book on glass: rather scary earstuds introduced by the Egyptians (they couldn't work their rough glass paste very finely).

It makes for a nice extra (authentic) detail... Kind of tells you Kesep's a bit of a tough, none-too-subtle guy!
The history buffs among you may have figured out what SR is and remembered that water was indeed a problem, being unavailable on the "rock".
