Ancient Egyptian Art

Ancient Egyptian art includes any sculpture, architecture, paintings, ceramics, drawings on papyrus, faience, jewellery, ivories, burial artefacts or objects produced by the civilization of ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptian art reached a high level of expression which was uniquely stylized and symbolic and which changed remarkably little over its three thousand years of history which spanned about 3000 BC to 30 AD. Much of the surviving art comes from tombs, temples and monuments. It displays a vivid representation of the ancient Egyptian’s social status and belief systems.

The Most Popular Egyptian Art featured on “Joy of Museums” is derived from a list of Egyptian art and artefacts that are most viewed on this site.
