Egypt - ROYGBIV by Chael Egypt - ROYGBIV by Chael
A test spectrum of Egyptian gods, chibified.

Many Egyptian gods were associated with certain colors due to their spheres of influence. Later I noticed they also overlap with traditional color and chakra symbolism. This was a quick idea for a more refined and colorful project, which I am currently working on. I had an alternate one that included , Set, Hathor, Horus, Heh, Nun, Thoth, and Serket, but it didn't look as good. Perhaps another time.

Red - Sekhmet (goddess of war)
Orange - Atum (creator, king solar god, also Atum-Ra)
Yellow - Shu (god of air and sunlight)
Green - Geb (god of the earth)
Blue - Hapy (god of the Nile river and water)
Indigo - Iah (god of the moon, Egypt's first moon god)
Violet - Isis (goddess of magic and life)

Amusing note: After doodling this, I realized there are 4 generations of divine relatives here. Atum-Ra the creator is Shu's father. Shu is Geb's father, and Geb is Isis' father. :D

He just made it up. These colors represent each category. For example:  For the reason why the goddess of war is red, because war may cause injury that causes red blood out. Ask me if you want to know more. I know lots!Meow :3

Orange- orange repersents the colour of our star, the sun.
Yellow- the colour of sunlight, so beautifully golden.
Green- the colour of our earth's ecosystem and plants too.
Blue- the colour of water from the Neil River.
Indigo- darkest colour. Repersents the night sky.
