Symbol & Magic in Egyptian ArtBook - 1994
There is scarcely an Egyptian temple, pyramid, obelisk, wall painting or sculpture that does not possess some hidden meaning - a meaning which can only be understood by reference to the fundamental symbolic code used by the ancient Egyptians. This book reveals the language of this ancient code, which endured for millennia. This guide offers a thematic treatment of Egyptian art. Illustrations allow the reader to see and understand ancient works as the Egyptians did themselves, and the reference section includes a glossary and guide to further reading.
