Egyptian Coven: Another Block Possibility

I love the Anubis block I'm drafting.  I will finish the pattern and make him myself in order to test it.  I still think it's an appropriate block for the Egyptian Coven.

Another idea occurred to me today, though.  I should have gone back and read about the Egyptian Coven in Breaking Dawn or The Official Illustrated Guide to refresh my memory about some of the finer details.

Breaking Dawn, p. 610

Amun has been keeping Benjamin from Aro's attention.  Amun created Benjamin, knowing he would be special. (Edward)

What can he do? (Bella)

.....He can actually influence the elements--earth, wind, water, and fire.  True physical manipulation, no illusion of the mind. .... (Edward)

I was reminded of Benjamin's control of the four elements and its importance to the story while browsing through all my saved photos at work.  I do that every so often for inspiration and to help myself get back on track.  I have yet to come up with a good way to stay organized...not from lack of effort, but maybe from lack of will.

I came across this photo:

I'd like to try something with these symbols.

A reminder to me:  it never hurts to re-read the books.
