The sphinx

THE SPHINX

The Sphinx in a perfect example of the amazing Egyptian art. It is a statue that has the body of a lion, but the head of a god. The Sphinx is located in Egypt, right outside of Cairo. It was carved from giant piece of limestone. It was constructed during the Old Kingdom, somewhere around 2400 B.C.


Egyptian art

Egyptian Art

  • Egyptian art is made up of simple shapes and lines.

    Their art depicted humans figures facing sideways.

    The art was not in proportion. This style of art

    stayed the same for hundreds of years for the

    the Egyptians. The drawings that appeared on walls and pillars

    are the most famous form of Egyptian art. The Egyptians usually

    used bright colors. In the time of Ramses II, the Egyptians were

    able to construct layered effects.

ARMARNAPERIOD


Armarna period

ARMARNA PERIOD

  • The Amarna period was a time of a drastic change in Egyptian

    art. The Armarna period took place during the reign of

    Akhenaten. Instead of the traditional depiction of the perfect

    faces and characteristics, people were portrayed with

    Brutalhonesty. Akhenaten like the Armarna style of art.

    Many statues of Akhenaten were very unusual so

    peoplebelieved he must have been ugly, but it was

    probably the art style. They also gave him feminine

    qualities such as large hips, prominent breasts, which

    are unlike the chiseled features of the previous style of

    Egyptian art.


Symbolism

SYMBOLISM

  • Almost all of the Egyptian Art is symbolism. The biggest example of Egyptian symbolism is hieroglyphics. Hieroglyphics if a writing style that uses symbols that have the meanings of words. Hieroglyphics are of everyday people doing everyday things. For example, one of the pieces of art could look like a bunch of different symbols, but it could actually mean something else.


Architechture

ARCHITECHTURE

  • Some believed that the Egyptians were the greatest architects

    in the world. The pyramids are one of the greatest achievements of man kind. The

    pyramids are one of the seven wonders of

    world and they were built by the ancient Egyptians. The extremely large statues are

    also a great architectural defeat on their own.


Sculpture

SCULPTURE

  • Sculptors were very important artists in Ancient Egypt. There

    were many statues made in Ancient Egypt like the statue (bottom

    right). They made statues of many things

    like kings and queens, gods and

    goddesses, and animals. Ancient Egypt

    was a time of amazing architecture but

    the sculptures and statues in ancient

    Egypt are unbelievable, and we should

    not overlook them.


The pyramids

THE PYRAMIDS

  • Pyramids are large

    stone structures built

    by the Egyptians to

    hold the pharaoh's

    body. They are made

    of 2 million giant

    stones, each weighing

    around 2.5 tons. The Great pyramids stand about 500 feet in the

    air. They were the tallest structures for over 4000 years. What is

    so amazing about the Great Pyramids is that they were built

    without special tools, or even wheels.
