"The Eye of Horus"
One day I was going through some files of references for new painting concepts and I came to a folder of images of an artifact that had been discovered in King Tuts tomb. It is a pectoral plate depicting a vulture a snake with the ancient egyptian symbol most commonly known today as "The Eye of Horus". The eye is a powerful symbol of the gods. This treasure of the ancient world represents the pharoah's role as the unifier of upper and lower Egypt under the gods.
I chose to make the eye appear alive and with an other than human pattern, as a way of symbolizing the timelessness of the symbol and the infinite power of the cosmic force it represents.

Art Scholarship Fund
Here at Biagio's Tattoo Gallery we believe in the benefits of an artists education. We understand the value of knowledge & creative expansion and how it can benefit individual lives as well as entire communities. Because of such, we offer the Leilagio Art Scholarship to a prospective art student at William Paterson University. Funds are gathered from painting auctions, donations and tattooing during exhibit opening days. If you are interested in donating to our scholarship, please email us.
