Art in Egypt


Egyptian art was commissioned to be used in tombs and temples.  Art in Egypt had to follow strict rules. The art murals in Egyptian temples were designed to help speed the journey of the kings to the afterworld.

Egypt developed writing during the first two dynasties.  The form of Egyptian writing was called hieroglyphics.  They were characters used as picture signs.  Initially hieroglyphic were carved on stone, later they were placed on papyrus.
