Perfume bottles have a long history. The oldest manufacturer discovered dates back to around 1850 BC in Greece. Perfume bottles were originally used for religious and medical applications. On this bottle, I painted the mysterious landscape of ancient Egypt using deep cobalt blue and gold paints. In addition to Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun, I also drew the portrait of Isis, the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus, in the background.
