AUC Press's Description

This large-format, magnificently illustrated book shows the portraits and monuments that are the artistic masterpieces of antiquity in a new light. It traces the profiles of 34 kings and queens to present an in-depth picture of the history and art of ancient Egypt and its pharaohs. The pharaoh, as the incarnation of the falcon god Horus and son of the sun god Ra, was the guarantor of cosmic order on Earth and the intermediary between the gods and men. Some pharaohs left such traces of themselves that they became immortal figures: the names Khufu, Tutankhamun, and Ramesses II remain well known after thousands of years. For other monarchs, the names and fragments of representations may be the only traces we can use today to reconstruct the events of those times. This splendid collection of images brings together the greatest and most significant art of the pharaohs, and interprets its meaning and aesthetic achievement.
