“For the great eras in the history of the development of all the arts have been eras not of increased feeling or enthusiasm in feeling for art, but of technical improvements primarily and specially” (Oscar Wilde). In today’s society, art has become a representation of what beauty looks like hung up on a wall while that was not the case by any means for the Egyptians. The Egyptians created art solely based upon their devotions of funerary objects for their gods and their king. In my personal opinion, the Egyptians (other than Jesus Christ) helped bring society together as a whole due to their creativeness and cleverness. They were the first people on Earth to come up with the first form of writing called hieroglyphics which soon became more advanced into the writing system. If they had never come up with the idea of a form of communication, where would we be in today’s society? Before Christ was born, Egyptians expressed their art through their beliefs in the gods, goddesses, and kings by enriching their devotions through art. Not only did their art convey symbolism and beauty, but it was also a way for the ancient Egyptians to express their devotion for their gods and king. By doing so, Egyptians created art such as pottery, sculptures, and paintings to put inside the tombs where the gods and kings would rest in peace. Egyptians began creating art during the Prehistoric Era (5450-2690 BCE) to The New Kingdom Era (1550-1070 BCE). During this time, they constructed tombs and pyramids to house and worship their dead king or god, while creating sculptures, paintings and pottery to decorate the inside of the tombs. Egyptians adored expressing their artistic abilities and surrounding themselves by the beauty in life and death. Not only did they have creative minds to come up with the very first writing form, but they were also extremely creative when it came to what they would use to create particular types of art. For instance, pottery was mainly made out of clay and red in color with black stenciling to paint symbols on them. Sculptures were usually made out of mudbrick or limestone, as well as the tombs. This Exhibition Project will explain the usage of pottery and sculptures as well as their meanings. We will open the hidden pieces and facts of Vaso Predinástico, The Ivory King, The Statue of a Family Group, The Stele of Zezen-nakht, and the head of a figure of the cow Hathor. Each of these pieces of art tells a different story about the ancient Egyptians and I have come to respect such art more due to the fact that they narrate a time before Christ. Subsequently, the ancient Egyptians wanted to express their beliefs and religious aspects of art through the afterlife which was tremendously important to them as well as their families. According to Khan Academy, the works of the Egyptians were not meant to be seen-that was not their purpose. Their purpose was to give a faithful representation of life after death.
