Abstract:

The powerful images of Egyptian art span over 3000 years. These ancient artists took their inspiration from the Nile valley and its people, the awesome majesty of the pharaohs, and the mysterious world of the gods. Much of the material that has survived was intended to serve a deceased man or woman in the afterlife. This volume includes some of the more famous images: the gold mask of Tutankhamun, the haunting face of the enigmatic pharaoh Akhenaten, and the striking tomb painting of the beautiful Nefertari, wife of Ramesses II; the magical burial rites illustrated in the papyri known as the Books of the Dead and the tomb paintings that reflect the expectations for the afterlife; and finally statues of Osiris and the other deities that controlled every aspect of life--and rebirth. --back cover.
