    About The Book

    The art of ancient Egypt has excited imaginations for centuries. But without knowledge of hieroglyphic images, Egypt’s rich artistic legacy, from colossal statues to finely wrought jewelry and minuscule charms, remains obscure. Here, for the first time, is an introduction to the symbolic language of hieroglyphs: a directory of the one hundred signs used most often in Egyptian painting and sculpture — from seated man and lion to vulture and ankh. This great repertoire of symbols was developed to make the trancendental enigmas of creation, fortune and fecundity, death and the life beyond, immediate and understandable. Richard Wilkinson’s authoritative and thoroughly researched guide offers a comprehensive explanation of the symbols, their origins, identification and uses. He shows how they form a crucial pictorial component of many of the greatest Egyptian masterpieces — an insight hitherto enjoyed only by scholars and Egyptologists. The hieroglyphs are arranged thematically, fully cross-referenced, and illustrated by several hundred newly commissioned drawings and photographs. The result is an indispensable companion for those seeking to understand the mysteries of Egyptian art, and a fascinating sourcebook for all ages on an ancient language’s hidden symbols and signs.
