Full description for Ancient Egyptian Designs Coloring Book

  • Gold glints from the tomb of Tutankhamen - gold and the thousand shades of the Nile lotus. Here in 39 authentic pictures are designs taken from Tut's tomb and other shrines at Thebes, from the 18th-20th Dynasties (c. 1567-1085 BC). As rendered by noted designer Ed. Sibbert, Jr., they can be colored in the manner of the Egyptian painters or any way your imagination suggests. Some fo these motifs, taken from tomb ceilings, murals, wood sculpture, vases, and papyrus paintings, have been featured in the traveling Tutankhamen exhibit. Motifs include: the winged Isis, Osiris, Buto the Cobra-goddessd, various Pharoahs, scarabs, and animals deities; scenes of daily life (hunting, boating, banqueting, masters and servants), and decorative ornament - lotus, ibis, falcon, kion, snake, barbaria. Identifying captions with historial information accompany each drawing, and a brief introduction and glossary of gods complete this coloring book, a fine source of ancient Egyptian pictorial design, and a pleasure to color in any medium.
