Event description
Lecture 4 in a series of five examining the material culture of Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt - Human Representations

About this event

The Predynastic and early Dynastic era is often overlooked by scholars. Yet it produced some of the most beautiful pottery every created by the ancient Egyptians, fine crafted hard stone vessels, the first anthropomorphic representations, ceremonial objects vested with political and economic power and examples of early pictorial writing, which later formed the basis of hieroglyphics. In addition, the burial practises may have inspired mummification and the development of elaborate tombs as houses of the ka. This course will examine the iconography, artistic methods and materials used at this time period, in order to understand how motifs and style developed over time to form the basis of pharaonic design. We will also consider what these objects can real about life and belief systems in early Egypt.
