Fanart of the first Avatar

My head cannon on this tale is that Amon found this text and designed his mask off of the first Avatar spirit.

I worked to keep it as possible as I could. We know that before the avatar was born people used energybending, but for some reason they stopped.

We know later that there were two people the learned Earthbending from the Badgermole and that the other nations learned bending from dragons, sky bison and the moon/ocean spirits.

I believe that the avatar has always had to learn elemental bending from other teachers, but that it has always known energybending. With this in mind this story took shape.

I have been fighting myself on how I wanted to tell it, but in the end I thought a simple look would be best. I was heavily inspired by the Egyptian texts I have studied in the past.

    Finally found it. This being disproven was definitely a treat. I like what the creators did with the story. :’)
