“EGY Bazar” is honored to present you a brief details on the Egyptian art that still represent a great symbol of civilization till today. Egyptian Art is one of the old arts that all humanity had ever witnessed. We all know that the art has been the best tool in order to immortalize the human progress on that time. Art has been the greatest element of this civilization.
In the era of the beginning of civilizations, we find a strong, mature art superior to the art of any modern state and is only matched by the art of Greece. In the first epoch of Egypt, It was characterized by isolation and peace, followed by the spread of injustice and war during the reign of Tuthmosis the Third and Ramses II, which gave it the opportunity and the means to build huge buildings, sculpt statues and other little craftsmanship, almost perfect in this deep era. One is standing perplexed, almost unbelievable, of the theories developed by researchers on human evolution if one looks closely at the achievements of ancient Egyptian art.
The architecture was the most luxurious Egyptian arts ever, because of the combination of magnificence, greatness, rigidity, beauty and utility. This art began with a modest start with the decoration of tombs and the exterior decoration of the houses walls. The large number of dwellings was built of mud, sometimes with simple woodwork (such as Japanese windows or fine engraving doors) and the roofs were on easy-to-treat palm trees. The house was usually surrounded by a wall with a courtyard, from which is a staircase ascended to the roof of the house; where they descended into their rooms.
Rich Egyptian people had private gardens that were well coordinated; in the urban areas there were parks for the poor. We could hardly found any house without decorating with lovely ornamental flowers. The Egyptian art appeared clearly on walls of the house which were adorned with a colorful handmade mats inside, and the land was furnished with rugs, if the master of the house was wealthy. The Egyptians would have preferred to sit on these rugs rather than sitting on chairs. In the old state, the Egyptians ate food while they were sitting cross-legged in front of tables not bigger than six inches height, as the Japanese do these days, and they ate using their hands; Then, the upper classes begun to sit on high chairs with cushions, and their food serves to them.
