A slightly freaky sight this morning. Following an accident last night with the cooking and a bad case of negligence on my part, quite a bit of muck was on the hob – so I applied a liberal coating of “generic hob cleaning stuff: Brand A” and left it over night.
Woke up and went in to be greeted by this…
Being a bit of a fan of Egyptology, I instantly recognised the shape as being significant. More exactly, I recognised the shape and its significance, then spent ages on Google and trawling through some books to try and remember what it is called.
It is similar to the Egyptian Solar Disc surrounded by two snakes (Uraeus). It represents the God Horus in the form of his battle with Set – and the two snakes are the goddesses Nekhbet and Uazet.
OK – do I really think that the Egyptian God Horus paid a visit to my flat overnight – well, no I don’t.
It is an interesting formation overnight which looks significant, but only because it is in a shape I recognise. Had it been in the shape of (for example) the logo to some reality TV show, I wouldn’t have even recognised it.
I am however, curious as to how the cleaning fluid pulled away so cleanly to leave the lines, and also how the lines are consistant regardless of the thickness of the cleaning fluid I left out overnight.
