Book Review


Many Egyptian gods are represented by animals and have great powers. The Egyptians would draw people from the front with their heads and legs in profile. What would you look like as an Egyptian god? Their alphabet had thousands of hieroglyphs. Try to write your name using a simplified version of their alphabet. Their canopic jars, death masks, coffins and sarcophagi were all decorated elaborately and works of art. They had many styles, and with this book you can try to design your own!
