Long-eared Hedgehog

This painting is from my Wildlife Art of Ancient Egypt collection.

Hedgehogs were kept for many purposes in Ancient Egypt. They were eaten, given in tribute and seen as symbolic protection in the afterlife. Hedgehogs were often carried in cages on boats, because they could sense when a storm was coming, so acted as living barometers. They became symbolic of guidance and safe passage through the cataracts, the areas of rapids within the course of the Nile. I wish you safe passage through any cataracts in your own journey.

Why choose a greetings card based on an original painting?

- A unique card - no high street store duplicates

- Quirky and fun

- Perfect for the historians in your family

- Ideal Bon Voyage card
