Ancient Egyptian art encompasses art such as architecture, sculpture and painting produced in Egypt from about 3000 BC. to 100 AD Egyptian artists used stone, wood, paintings and drawings on papyrus to produce their artwork. Sculpture and painting, which were both symbolic and stylized, reached a particularly high level during this time. Many of the surviving art comes from monuments, which were recorded past events and graves, in which scenes related to Egyptian beliefs about life after life.
Symbolism was widely used in Egyptian art and contained such things as a pharaoh of regalia (used to show his power) and symbols of animals and Egyptian gods and goddesses. The colors used in the art were more symbolic than natural and used to represent stylized aspects of the figures depicted. Another feature of Egyptian art used the magnitude of the numbers described to indicate their relative importance. Usually, gods and pharaohs are the largest numbers, while other figures become incrementally smaller as their importance decreases. Egyptian art has changed very little during the 3000 years it was produced.
Egyptian reliefs were not always painted and many less important works painted were simply painted on a flat surface. Some higher quality limestone can be painted directly, but other stone surfaces were made of whitewash or a layer of coarse clay plaster with a more even top layer. Mineral pigments (which would not fade in strong sunlight) were normally used. True fresco (ie painting on wet gypsum) was not used. The paint was applied to washed plaster, with a resin or varnish that was often used as a protective coating. Many of these paintings not exposed to the elements have survived because of Egypt's very dry climate. Even many paintings that had some exposure to the elements have survived quite well, but those who were completely exposed to the weather rarely survived.
Many of the surviving paintings were found in graves, where they were well protected from the elements. These paintings were usually meant to help make a nice living for the deceased. Many of the themes of the paintings contained a representation of the journey through the aftermath, protective gods introduced false to the underground gods (who would probably protect them in the afterlife) and activities that deceased wanted to continue in the afterlife.
Monumental Egyptian sculpture is known throughout the world, and most of the major works that have survived are from graves and temples. Great stone statues were made to represent gods and pharaohs and their queens. These were often placed in open areas inside or outside the temples. Many temples had roads lined with large statues that included sphinxes and other animals. Some great wooden statues with rich administrators and their wives have also survived to the present (due to Egypt's dry climate), along with very high quality smaller stone sculptures. These smaller stone figures were often made using a method called "sunk relief" (which is a type of relief where the highest points in the carved figures are levels with or below the original surface in which they are cut, making the figure appear submerged) in the surface), which is particularly suitable for use in bright sunlight.
