Ancient art from antique Egypt is still as popular and romantic
as the early twentieth century when the greatest finds were being made.
Discoveries in the Valley of the Kings throughout the early years of the
last century guaranteed their high standing in the hearts of collectors.
But the nation shut its door to many collectors and scientists to
prevent the pillaging of history. Newer discoveries wound up in museums.
You can still find items like scarabs and papyrus and accessories from
ancient tombs if you persevere. You can hunt for an Egypt map, pictures
of Egyptian mummies, ancient Egypt pictures, and Egyptian pyramids
The popularity of the ancient land is astounding despite Biblical and
Hollywood images that paint the ancient Egyptians as the villains. We
can still visualize Yul Brynner and his guards thundering in their
chariots after Charlton Heston, as they head towards a disastrous defeat
at the Red Sea. It is likely that styles are acceptable today, including the
penchant for using wigs and the elegance of the art. Even the history
is interwoven with ancient Rome (from Julius Ceasar to Mark Antony) which
we consider a link to modern day culture. We are fascinated with the power and
beauty of Cleopatra, as much as the political intrigues.
On more specific items you may find pictures of goddess Isis,
pictures of the eye of Horus, and Horus pictures in general. These are
for the knowledgeable students, but even the general populace can
equally discover copies of ancient Egypt maps, pictures of Egypt,
information on ancient Egypt pyramids that you might not find anywhere
else, the history of ancient Egyptian gods along with Egyptian god
pictures, and clues to ancient Egypt history, even the history of Isis
Osiris Horus, the major players in the mythology of ancient Egypt. For
fashion students, look for ancient Egyptian clothing pictures, but for
those of you who want to own a piece of history, you may find examples
of ancient Egyptian clay pottery.
