Life in Egypt-through the eyes of the Artist

For thousands of years the artists of Ancient Egypt carved and painted the images of their world on walls, in tombs, on papyrus and everyday belongings. Theses beautiful works of art give a brief look into a World of luxury and pleasure of the wealthy as well as life and hard work of the common people.

Women making final arraignments to their outfits before a party (note the perfumed wax on their wigs that will melt as the event proceeds and keep the women smelling sweet).

Farming, the most common work of the people.
