It’s all hieroglyphics to me…

Having previously demonstrated how to write the complete Roman (English) alphabet in dog faces, Japanese calligrapher Tohgutakumi is back, continuing his exploration of alternative caligraphies by attempting to write out our native alphabet again, this time by substituting Egyptian hieroglyphics. It’s not a one-to-one substitution because Egyptian was constructed rather differently from later European languages but it’s interesting, nonetheless.
