After submitting my doctorate (Ph.D.) thesis in 2011, I had the opportunity to present my research at the Montreal chapter of the Association for the Study of Ancient Near-East's (Association pour l'Étude du Proche-Orient Ancien) 2012 colloquium at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQUAM).


Below is a basic English translation of the introductory text to this research in French, which consists of an iconographical analysis of ancient Egyptian artwork found in the context of tombs of the New Kingdom tombs.


Votive representations for the "Lady of Life": iconography of New Kingdom Egyptian earthenware bowls


"Using examples drawn from his iconographic analysis of New Kingdom Egyptian earthenware bowls, the author presents the major symbolic themes of fertility and rebirth in the afterlife, typically found on this type of ceramic and intrinsically linked to the deity Hathor ("Lady of Life"). Through an analysis of the formal and symbolic transformations of these iconographic motifs, the author discusses the historical, ideological and socio-political factors leading to representational transformations. This approach will enable us to grasp the dynamics underlying the maintenance and subtle transformation of the Egyptian representational canon (canon codified by the state and theologians, adoption of foreign motifs, religious transformations, etc.)."

Who is Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard?


As a starseed soul, intuitive artist, iconographer, transmitter, collage artist and travel photographer, my soul purpose is to share my higher self connection and spiritual intuitive guidance in the form of a reading or Creative Intuitive Transmission with meaning (iconography), high vibration words and artwork as an original art collage of Japanese art style washi chiyogami paper (normally used for origami). It also takes the form of color and black and white photo digital files of travel, nature, landscape, animal, urban, architecture and b&w photography. Both are for sale as wall art in my art shop and their creative process and inspiration is discussed in blog posts on this website. They are also shared as videography on “The grounded starseed” Youtube channel, to offer you high frequency art.
