    £16.99 Members' price *


    Ancient Egyptian art roughly spans the period between 3000 BCE and 30 BCE, and is highly stylized and symbolic.

    Egyptian art took the forms of pottery, sculpture, hieroglyphs, paintings and architecture. Because of the strongly religious character of ancient Egyptian civilization, its greatest artworks emphasize the afterlife, and depictgods, goddesses and Pharaohs who were also considered divine.

    Illustrated with over 250 remarkable objects from the British Museum and many other collections in Europe, the United States and Egypt, this major book brings insights based on the author's first- hand study in Egypt.
