Egyptian cursed mummy rising to threaten archaeologists

This 'tongue in cheek' horror illustration shows two archaeologists studying an egyptian tomb. One of them has been reading an ancient scroll which was a curse. A mummy has now appeared in the shadows at the back of the tomb.

Most of the illumination is generated from the lamp that is held in the center of the painting. The light is just starting to fall on to the ancient egyptian mummy. The design of the characters are slightly stylized. 

Painted in 2009.
