Egyptian Man Art Print

I made this Egyptian man art print for a series of history timeline pictures. It was one of my 10 first attempts to use 3D images as source for my artwork. I finished it around mid 2007.

When I was about 7 or 8, my mother started to buy an Ancient History encyclopedia for me. It was divided into weekly booklets that she bought every Monday and read to me every afternoon after lunch.

I remember very vividly the Ancient Egypt series with very neat illustrations and easy-to-understand content.

My mother was a bachelor in history and psychology, which gave her the ability to fill in the eventual blanks with valuable and interesting information for a kid of my age.

I find that this was the first step, along with the Asterix comics, to create a history curious mind on me.

School time came and bad teachers turned that off a bit, but my parents were wise enough not to push too hard on the matter and just kept taking me to events and entertainment that had historical information.

 

Among the many, I should mention:

 

Museum of Natural History in New York

The Louvre Museum

The Ten Commandments

El Cid (dad)

Ben-Hur (dad)

The Met

Asterix comics

Jesus Christ Superstar movie

The Agony and the Ecstasy

Spartacus

Madam Tussaud’s

Castles and Churches

Brother Sun, Sister Moon

Henry VIII and His Six Wives

Anne of the Thousand Days

The idea was never to make me learn stuff by heart, just bring up an acquaintance to the images of periods and entertain.

Some of them were boring? Sure, but I had a special guide that would explain (we sat in the back) almost every doubt I had. That would later lead to very interesting conversations for a curious-oriented child.

Ancient Egypt


Concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River, Ancient Egypt was a civilization of Northeastern Africa that goes back over 7000 years.

Ruled by Pharaohs, a series of stable Kingdoms separated by periods of relative instability characterize the history of ancient Egypt.

Great pyramids were built in those times

Egyptians rivalled the Hittites, Assyrians, and Mitannis, at the same time of their pinnacle power during the New Kingdom, in the Ramses dynasty period. After that, entering a period of slow decline.

Even being invaded or conquered by a succession of foreign powers that impacted it’s culture, the Macedonians, in the aftermath of Alexander the Great’s death, were the most influential.

Ptolemy Soter, one of his generals, established himself as the new ruler and his dynasty ruled Egypt until 30 BC. Cleopatra fell to the Roman Empire and the region became one of its provinces.

    I really like this picture of the Egyptian Man. The whole Egyptian era is in my mind very mysterious. The things that they achieved in their time has made them so famous let alone the m having had the pyramids built and the sphinx. I am a lover and maker of art in an amateur way but attend an art and a pottery class every week to improve my skills as an artist. I went to the Louvre a long time ago and my friend and I were wandering around. I peeped through a gap in a huge tarpaulin sheet and behind it was a full size real live Sphinx and I just stood there in awe just looking at it. I have not personally seen the Pyramids but I sure would like to, sometime. I have had a look at quite a few of your other pictures and they are edgy and different to the normal standard of print which is great to see. For some reason i also like your print of Clint Eastwood. Very nicely set out website. Thanks for the experience.
