Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This lavishly illustrated book brings together a selection of ancient Egyptian works of art of outstanding quality and interest, ranging from large sculptures to small decorative objects. The introduction and full descriptions explain their significance, style, material, and mode of manufacture within the framework of the life and religious beliefs of the royal and private owners for whom they were made. Readers will find much of interest among the numerous objects, all of which are shown in color and many published here for the first time.

Synopsis:

This beautifully illustrated book highlights some of the most outstanding objects from ancient Egypt. The entries serve as an invaluable guide through four millennia of artistic production from one of the most visually advanced of ancient societies.
