This horned female, born of smoke, rises from a pyramid that is composed of three pyramids. People never notice that her eyes lack pupils.

When someone asked what the title would be, I answered, “Aries Rising.” He questioned why Aries and not Capricorn. I had no good explanation. That eveniing I googled Aries and Capricorn, only to learn that the Sanskrit word for Capricorn is MAKARA. My last name!
