Art in Egypt
Egypt is one of the most civilised countries in the world. This symbolic history has allowed it to be among the countries that hold several artistic objects of great value. Also the passage of the Romans in this country from the 1st to the 4th century, favoured the acquisition of several artistic works. In this article we will talk about Egyptian art and introduce you to some symbolic objects of the latter.
Egyptian art: a symbolic art
Previously referred to as Nagada art, the art of Egypt has its origins between 3000 and 3800 BC. Indeed, Egypt has known the passage of several foreign arts such as Coptic art or Byzantine art. But the effect of these did not have enough impact on Egyptian art, which nevertheless developed. The Egyptian tradition was for the Egyptians all they had. This tradition is also appreciated beyond the Egyptian border. For example, it was from the Egyptian sculpture that the Greeks derived theirs. Almost all African countries (e.g. Sudan, Libya, Mali, etc.) have seen Egyptian art appear on their territory. Even some Western countries have imported some Egyptian art into their museums. Another thing that makes Egypt a leading country in the field of art is its architecture.
