Egyptian Art

A language All its Own

The Egyptian written language was formed from pictures and symbols, their art is riddled with symbols, icons and motifs, and their religious ideas and practices are sophisticated concepts expressed largely in metaphors. It is impossible to understand Egyptian culture and practices without being able to decode the visual language that they used to express their ideas.

In this module students will be introduced to the framework of symbols, colours, motifs and icons used by the Egyptians to express core concepts in their ideology. Through this process students should gain a working knowledge of key concepts and ideas fundamental to an understanding of Egyptian culture and religious practice.
