Ancient Egyptian Art

Ancient Egyptian Art

Art usually reflects the world but in Ancient Egypt art reflected a very particular idealized world. To understand Egyptian Art, it is necessary to question its purpose; it was created for practical purposes – for worship, for daily use, or to serve needs either in the present life or the next life. In other words, a means to attain eternity. It is usually described through sculpture, relief, painting, and objects of daily life that were produced for more than three millennia of Egyptian culture.
