Overview

Kings, queens...and mummies. Egyptian art takes us back to the past, when pharaohs ruled and laborers built the pyramids. Take an archeological expedition through ancient statues, sculptures, and hieroglyphs. * Hello--is someone there? Find out if mummies really have a body inside, and how we can tell. * A bearded queen? Not really--but artists pictured Queen Hatshepsut that way...* Fingers and hands: is there something interesting about pharaoh Akhethotep's feet? And why are the children in Egyptian art holding their fingers up to their mouths? * What a relief!: Relief sculpture shows a person carved out of a flat block--but some are raised and some are sunken. And there's lots more to find out, from food to riches, from animals in art to ancient cosmetics. 72 pages (all in color), 4 1/2 x 8.
