Photo Hunt - Hard to find

The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is Hard to find/ tretching the theme rather, it occurred to me that Egyptian sarcophagi are hard to find except in museums. Here is a detail from a sarcophagus in the World museum in Liverpool

Even harder to find on a sarcophagus is the symbol "If you think I look bad, you should see the other guy" a symbol found mainly on the tombs of Pharaohs who liked a drink and a punch up....


Well that's my story and I am sticking to it!

Nice one, Jam.

I think this is a good take on the theme. It was definitely a wide open theme but had me scratching my head to think of where to go with it. Happy weekend.

By "If you think I look bad, you should see the other guy" the guy in the sarko-phag's refering to Sarko-zy.

As for the word-verification (tedhida): Ted's hiding in the sarkophag?

jams o donnell said...

Ah Ted;s by the fire! As for Sarko, perhaps he will need a sarcophagus come the next election
