Chapter 3 Egytian Art Early Dynastic and Old Kingdom Egypt (2950-2150 BCE) -they based their works of art off religious beliefs and practices -mainly tombs and temples are what survived -they believed in “Ka” the spirit of a person that lives after death which was what most of their statues were to honor *** Powerful individuals were portrayed as youthful and athletic. They stood with a more rigid stance and seemed muscular. They also normally had masks or something different on their heads to make them stand out and seem more powerful like 3-7 MENKAUVE AND A QUEEN. Ordinary people were life like and relaxed in the figures like 3-8 SEATED SCRIBE. Middle Kingdom (1975-1640 BCE) -Series of kings names Mentuhotep ruled this time period -the art focued more the changes pf political power and recent history -focued more on emotions and personal art *** HEAD OF SENESRET III is a great example of this time period. You can tell he is a powerful leader by his head gear and his resemblance to the powerful leader but his face does show wear and makes him seem emotionally and physically drained from ruling the monarch. New Kingdom (1539-1075 BCE) -focued more on expansion and building an empire -many sanctuary and religious temples were build for powerful people like kings and priest where they could go and worship statues of their God (3-14 TEMPLE OF AMUN AT KARNAK) *** Besides building and temples, artiest of this time period also focused on creating portraits of the royal families that had power at the time. Figure 3- 20 NEFERTITI was painted out of limestone to resemble the royal family. Late Egyptian Art (332 BCE) -Alexander the Great was in power *** Art was created out of wood panels and wax was added to provide detailed features like peoples faces. They focused on individual features of the dead so you would be able to identify who is was who passed. Figure 3- 23 MUMMY WRAPPING OF A YOUNG BOY is a good example because who knew who died, a young boy, because of its facial features.
