Idealistic or realistic ?
Harpist Neferhotpe playing small arched harp.
Tomb of Nebsumenu and Sunebau. XII Dynasty, 1991-1782 BC, Middle Kingdom.
Stela. Necropolis at el-Khokha, Western Thebes.
Remember the characteristics of Egyptian painting we studied in class. Is there any sense of perspective? (look at the table and the food on top) Are the eyes frontal or in profile, and the chests? Are the figures idealistic?(look at the harpist)!!!
Well as you can see there are always exceptions to what the teacher tells.
