Ancient Paint

day-2-paint image

In ancient times, Egypt used paintings on rock walls to depict and record their lives.

I find it fascinating how detailed their work is. The image on the right is something I found in creative commons to use here.

Each painting tells a story. This particular image was fount on the wall of the Tomb of Nebamun.

The Tomb of Nebamun was located in the Theban Necropolis located on the west bank of the Nile at Thebes, in Egypt. The tomb was the source of a number of famous decorated tomb scenes that are currently on display in the British Museum, London.

This image depicts a hunting scene. The link will take you to the Wikipedia page telling about the tomb and its paintings.

I love history! What’s your take on history?
