Egyptian iconographies by shawkash Egyptian iconographies by shawkash
Just for fun.

inspired by an art piece made by *1NNU3NDO

Credits exhibition:
Melgi picture, and the source of drawing Adel Adham, Soaad Hosni etc, Al Khatib are all owned by me.

Most vectors are made by me except: that small horses coat of arms, it is made by ~YSR1 he didn't ask for credits though.

The lady on bottom left, is from a stock account in DA, it's condition didn't require to give any credit. However I wish to give it, but since this particular work is done since about a year, I forgot the URL, if you know her let me know, however -again- I am sure she had no conditions to credit her back.

The rest of photos are from sxc.hu.

This is nice and it must have been hard to choose from among the dozens of iconic figures that represented Egypt during that time period. :D

I am really wondering whose photo that is on the extreme bottom right. At first I thought it might have been Dalida. :confused:

Egypt a once beautiful nationalistic country, which gave the Arab world leaders as Abel Nasser and wonderful singer as Um Khaltom. Is now the land of traitors and starving population...

Nothing against the Egyptian people, but I still waiting for a Coup etat...

I like old Egypt too, for modern one I don't like everything, I don't think Egyptians are poor though, we just have some manners problem. :)

Still I can't forgive Egypt, what they are doing against us...Know what I don't want to continue, I will end hurting you and the people of Egypt....

Just wanna say that the West aren't your friend and that we other Arabs(especially we Palestinians) are missing Mother Egypt, thats it.

well seems you have a lot of problems in regards of the Egyptian politics. I fear to say while your opinion doesn't hurt me, and it is a respected one, this art piece is more focusing on Egyptian events and iconographics that is separated from politics. I am not against discussing politics in art though, but may be in a future art piece. :)

Well I have nothing against Egypt and its people, everybody knows that Egypt was the country who paid the most of the wars. I have heard that in every city, town and village theres a least a dozens of martyrs form all three Egypt where in.
I just want to hear an ordinary Egyptian opinion on the situation, since you only hear the politicians on tv..

My opinion in the situation of Egypt & Palestine? I don't personally have the regular Egyptian opinion, so let me say what most Egyptians would agree with: I am quite sure I wish for Palestine to get it's freedom, since Egypt has got ride of the English occupation, it worked very hard with the leadership of Mr.Gamal Abdul Nassir - رحمه الله - to help most arabic countries to get their freedom too. And with a way or another, each country which was under occupation has got it's freedom. One country which has been stuck in the middle which is Palestine. It belonged firstly to the English occupation, and it is kinda given to Israel by them. etc. And we still wish for them to get their freedom, or to get a free country with boundaries. I think what I said is what a big majority of Egyptians think too.
