Interior Design 101- Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egyptian Art

Okay boys and girls, time for our next visual history lesson! Egyptian art, furniture, architecture and accessories were and are beautiful! Some adjectives here- massive, solid, perpetual, protected, repetitive, colorful, representative, and developed. There is obviously plenty of info to go with each of these themes but it's far too much to cover here so feel free to read up. In the end, Egyptian culture was so protected politically, geographically and environmentally that we have so much to study. They had the means to grow as artisans, thus stretching their crafts to the limit of tools and invention. It was always inwardly focused, always celebrating Egypt and always brillaintly excessive.
