I love the idea of Alexandria being represented.

Two thoughts occurred to me:

There appear to be a vulture's head close to the tall tower near her head. The bird in the sky might also be a vulture. This would connect her with Nekhbet. Her attributes include motherhood and life and death. Nekheb was a necropolis and home to Egypt's oldest oracle.

Secondly, the two towers remind me of the teaching parable of a wise man and a foolish man - one built his house on sand and the other built his house on rock. Naturally the one on sand got washed away.

Our thoughts (even our destructive ones) are essentially our own constructs. How enduring they are, depends on the foundation we have given them.
