“Ra Meandros” marks a new paradigm in my personal life, derived from a painting on my college graduation cap. Bringing in cultural influences from my Greek background as well as a hint of Egypt, I wanted to create something the reflected my personal progress, history, and the future. Both cultures have prominent representations of the eye. The Evil Eye and The Eye of Ra (or Horus), both of which can be perceived differently based on the beholder of symbol. The piece represents a ray of hope for the bright future that we all work towards and thwart the malevolence in our paths.
