Egyptian Tombs

 Jo Backhouse

Egyptian tombs were created to house the mummy of the deceased. They were a place of interaction between the living and the dead were offerings were made. In addition, the imagery depicted on the walls ensured an eternal supply of food and drink. It also facilitated the resurrection of the deceased, rejuvenated and renewed.  Learn to ‘read’ the images of eternity. Discover continuity and change, in vision and artistic techniques, from the Old Kingdom to the New Kingdom.
