Protection of the Hekma - Amonkhet MtG Art

Protection of the Hekma MtG Art by Ryan Alexander Lee

Setting: Amonkhet

Color: White spell

Location: Just inside the Hekma, the forcefield barrier that encloses the entire city-state

Action: Show a scene that illustrates what it’s like to be just inside the Hekma forcefield. The forcefield shimmers with magic, but the barrier itself is otherwise invisible. Sand dunes from the desert wastes beyond are piled up against the barrier, and a horde of desiccated mummies bump against it, mindlessly drawn by hunger. On this side of the barrier, the city-state is lush and calm.

Focus: The shimmering Hekma barrier is the most important element here.

Mood: Contrast of danger outside and safety inside.
