Art 1440 9.14 CHAPTER 3 Ancient Egypt Art becomes more about life after death (funerary art) rather than temples (where people prayed to God, or tried to have some connection with him.) Egyptians started creating dynasties. - Understand relationship between Egyptians and Nile (what made the fertile crescent fertile.) - Describe funerary art forms - Consider purpose and why they remain. Understand the move from pyramids to tomb temple and burial monuments of old and middle kingdoms. Egyptian art is very formulaic, and uses hierarchy of scale. If the Nile region hadn’t focused so much on bringing all Egyptians together, it wouldn’t have unified. They were very dependant on the nile. Fig 3.1 Earliest example of commemoration that is not funerary in nature. It commemorates the coming together of upper and lower Egypt. This is a very narrative piece. Fig (?) Pallette of Narmer. This was the blue print for a formula for figure representation. They didn’t deviate from this much.
