This lavishly illustrated book brings together a selection of ancient Egyptian works of art of outstanding quality and interest, ranging from large sculptures to enchanting 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. This handbook serves as an invaluable guide through four millennia of artistic production from one of the most visually advanced of ancient societies and readers will find much of interest and appeal among the numerous objects, all of which are shown in colour and many were published here for the first time.Read more
