Ancient Art Motifs of Egypt

As I walk through the exhibits in the museum, it occurs to me that the Egyptian tombs were treasure troves not only of gold but also of art. The objects dedicated to their dead are filled not only with treasures that would be needed for the maintenance of not just the body but also of the soul. Maybe that was the reason to decorate every object with art that would satisfy the soul.

A few motifs of ancient Egyptian Art:

A few beautiful motifs from their paintings:

The art can bee seen not only in their paintings but also the bindings and the embroidery:

If the dead were surrounded with so much beauty, I wonder how much beauty the living enjoyed!
