This is the original Gouache painting by Angus McBride.

From around 713BC Egypt was ruled by Negro Pharaoh's who's influence had extended North from Kush in the South of Egypt. This united though resented Kingdom lasted just 50 years before Thebes was conquered by the Assyrians and the Pharaoh fled South.

Kushites would never again be on the throne of Egypt as the country look towards the Mediterranean especially through trade with Greece.
