The amazing world of Egyptian art
Enter into the world of creativity
Most of egypt surrounds the religion of egyptian gods. 2,000 gods are from Egypt, but the main gods are Osiris( God of the dead), Isis(Goddess of mothering), Horus( Prince of gods), Thoth(Creator of magic, writing, teacher of egypt, and messenger of gods), and Ra( the King of gods). Because their religion is so strong, their art is based on the Gods and power over something. A picture that has a god in it shows the power, and the strength they hold. For example: The painting below is The Egyptian Afterlife. A showing of The religion that the ancient Egypt was based on had a firm belief on the concept of afterlife. Rather than a complete cessation, death was taken as a temporary interruption of life. They strongly believed that an eternal life was possible by the means of piety of god and a medium for preserving the dead – mummification.
