The exotic beauty and formal splendor of ancient Egyptian culture spring to life in these boldly outlined illustrations based on actual works of art. The subjects, ranging from Queen Cleopatra in full ceremonial regalia to a group of court musicians, are boldly drawn on sturdy translucent paper. Using crayons, colored pencils or felt-tip pens, colorists can create beautiful pictures that glow with splendid stained glass effects when placed in a window or held up to the light.
Included are 16 full-page images that recall one of the ancient world's most fascinating civilizations. Among them are Queen Hatshepsut in a ceremonial headdress, a pharaoh carrying sacred lotus flowers, a Nile boatman, Tutankhamen's gold casket, the goddess Selket and an Egyptian family hunting ducks on the Nile.
