  1. where is the article on St,. George, or is this a book????? margo della fargo

  2. Mandrake, Egypt

    Margo – was planning to finish for St Georges day – sorry for delay. Thank you for your comments on my Abydos pictures – and a good thought to publish more of them in a book – “Isis, Goddess in Egypt & India” does have several from Karnak for first time in colour – bit of an experiment – hope to do more.
