Art of the Week!

History and art go hand in hand.

I love ancient Egyptian history and decided to do this week’s art based on this intriguing civilization.

Picking just three pieces was hard but the following are the ones I finally decided on.

#1 Tutankhamun’s Death Mask 1323 BC.

Tutankhamen’s mask is more recently believed to be originally made for the queen pictured below.

#2 Nefertiti’s Bust- “The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 B.C.” Wikipedia

And one more, though not the least as some of the beliefs circling around this particular piece are a basis for my triple novel series in the making.

#3 Narmer Palette
