Egyptian Art is considered one of the most renowned and expressive cultural forms of its time, and it continues to captivate people in the modern era. Ancient Egyptian Art can be traced back to around 5000 BC to 300 BC.

Interestingly, the Egyptians did not have a term for “art,” but they continuously produced something unique that stands today as exotic and magnificent creations. In a sense, we could say that the Egyptians didn’t create art; rather, their works elevated it to the status of art.

Many of their works had symbolic meanings and were primarily intended for practical use, while also being visually stunning enough to be considered art.

While many Egyptian artworks exhibited artistic skill and technique, some of them displayed awkward proportions in their artistic elements.

The Egyptians strongly believed in immortality, and they expressed this belief through their artworks as well. It is said that many sculptures, statues, and paintings they created were intended to grant the depicted individuals an “immortal” status. They employed magical spells to bring the souls of these depicted individuals to life An Artist Portrait (Part Two) - This is the Part Two (and final part) of the true life story as artist written by Frank V.

Sculpture holds a prominent place in Egyptian Art. In addition to stone and metal sculptures, wooden statues were also crafted. However, the wooden and metal sculptures have a different impact and are lighter compared to the stone ones.

Egyptian sculptures were typically created in two or three dimensions. These carvings often included texts that referred to the events and occurrences of that time.
