Bennu

by Dan Cohen

The Bennu is an ancient Egyptian deity linked with the sun, creation, and rebirth. It may have been the inspiration for the phoenix in Greek mythology.

When I began planning out this series of work, I let my imagination wander around the Archetypal Realm, and see which god forms decided to speak up. The Bennu/Phoenix was one that came through pretty strongly. Sometimes you have to burn the old ways of thinking to make way for the new.

“My Superhero Mission is to Re-Enchant the World. It’s all too easy these days to feel disenchanted, as though Magic and Wonder are dead and gone, encased in a tomb made of jaded cynicism and modern materialism. Magic and Wonder are still here of course, waiting to be acknowledged. Re-enchantment is attuning to the humming Soul of the World. It’s revealing the hidden layers of meaning that lie just below the surface of things. It’s playing with possibilities. It’s the feeling of a before unseen world crystalizing right before your eyes. Of peering into that unknown yet familiar world, then having the feeling that something is peering back.”
