Rhodopis and The Golden Sandal is a modern interpretation of an ancient Egyptian story. Rhodopis is a young girl is gifted with a pair of mystical sandals, made golden by the light of dawn and the Truth of Ma’at. The daughter of a poor but skilled papyrus maker, Rhodopis studies the Egyptian Hieroglyphs and becomes a learned and truthful young woman. Rhodopis is protected by the Egyptian gods including the powerful Horus, half man and half falcon. Gifted with eye of Egypt, Horus discovers a deep sadness in the Pharoah who still seeks a beautiful and truthful queen to rule by his side. Horus steals one of Rhodopis' golden sandals for the Pharaoh, sending him on a quest into the mountains, over the Nile and across the desert in search of his queen of truth. Our story culminates at dawn as the red ball of Ra bursts above the horizon’s rim and Rhodopis and Pharaoh finally meet on the paw of the Sphynx.
