Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The art of ancient Egypt has excited imaginations for centuries. But without knowledge of hieroglyphic images, Egypt's rich artistic legacy, from colossal statues to finely wrought jewelry and miniscule charms, remains obscure. Here, for the first time, is an introduction to the symbolic language of hieroglyphics. 358 illustrations.

Synopsis:

An introduction to the symbolic language of hieroglyphs which includes a directory of the 100 used most often in Egyptian painting and sculpture. This book offers a comprehensive explanation of the symbols, their origins, identification and uses.
