Talk:Art of ancient Egypt

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I have moved this page to the present location, in view of wiki style of naming the article, for example, Culture of Ancient Rome which was also a COTW some weeks back. I request that article Art of ancient Egypt may be merged with this article. This will make the article an integrated one, and further development by different editors may be possible. --Bhadani 23:07, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Does any one object if I was to have a go at merging these 2 articles ? The first is rather short and could be merged quite easily (I think) Markh 09:51, August 23, 2005 (UTC)
I did a simple cut/paste job on the other article - works quite well. Probably needs further work on the evolution of art styles - i.e. Middle Kingdom art Vs. Old Kingdom art. Old article left, in case anyone objects to these additions Markh 13:50, August 23, 2005 (UTC)
As it seems no one does object, deleting Art of ancient Egypt and pasteing redirect. Banana04131 01:10, 11 October 2005 (UTC

Why remove a monumental sculpture of a Pharoah in the British Museum?[edit]

It was appropriate and very clean. This article is supposed to be about art history and it has no good art images.3dnatureguy 04:12, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

  • While the subject of the image is appropriate, I still believe that the images on wikipedia should be in 2D. I know I certainly don't have "3D glasses" and I'm betting that those out there who do are a minority. People who are researching here are going to be looking for good, clear, 2D images.--tut 22:09, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Advertising template?[edit]

How is this written like advertising? The template's been slapped on with no explanation in Talk, here, about what's wrong and what needs fixing.

  • It's probably a form of vandalism. Since this has been here for two months now with no response I'm removing it, and also the NPOV template because there is no mention of it in this discussion. If anyone feels there is something that doesn't conform to NPOV then put it back and provide information as to why here. 10:46, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Amarna relief[edit]

Do other editors think it's odd to place an amarna image (as the only picture) prominently in the 'characteristics' section? Art created under Akhenaton was known to be iconoclastic and is not representative of the 'Art of ancient Egypt'. Also, no indication of this is given. Any thoughts? the roof of this court is too high to be yours (talk) 15:30, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

"Art forms" section[edit]

The section deleted (twice now) by ISPs here is so iffy I'm not sorry to see it go. It should of course be redone properly, sometime, by someone ..... Johnbod (talk) 17:07, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

suggestion re. further information[edit]

I'd love to see - and think the article would benefit from - more information on the actual artists, i.e. their social status (were they slaves? were they respected members of society?), how they became artists (for example, was it hereditary?), etc. Or if not much is known I reckon we should at least say that. Thanks! --TyrS 09:22, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
