2) FF Hogshead Final

At left: An Egyptian fertility bird goddess – a blend of bird, woman, and deity with the often-seen raised-arm position. Many similar painted terra cotta figures, up to a foot tall, have been found in graves. Face is my own addition. At right: Nancy Hogshead-Makar, three-time Olympic gold medalist (plus one silver medal), graciously allowed me to use a famous photo of her as the model.
