Default Re: Ancient Art History

Ancient art refers to the many types of art produced by the advanced cultures of ancient societies with some form of writing, such as those of ancient China, India, Mesopotamia, Persia, Palestine, Egypt, Greece and Rome. The art of pre-literate societies is normally referred to as Prehistoric art.
Although some Pre-Columbian cultures developed writing during the centuries before the arrival of Europeans, on grounds of dating these are covered at Pre-Columbian art, and articles such as Maya art and Aztec art. Olmec art is mentioned below

The first sculptures in India date back to the Indus Valley civilization some 5,000 years ago, where small stone carvings and bronze castings have been discovered. Later, as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism developed further, India produced some of the most intricate bronzes in the world, as well as unrivaled temple carvings, some in huge shrines, such as the one at Ellora.

10 Most Distinguished Works of Ancient Egyptian Art
Narmer's Palette (31st Century BC)

Khufu's Statue (26th Century BC)

Egyptian Book of the Dead (16th Century BC)

Astronomical Ceiling, Tomb of Senenmut (15th Century BC)

Thutmose III Statue (15th Century BC)

Amarna Period Art (14th Century BC)

Nefertiti Bust (14th Century BC)

Tutankhamun's Golden Death Mask (14th Century BC)

Throne of Tutankhamun (14th Century BC)

Statue of Cleopatra VII Philopator (1st Century BC)


Due to the highly religious nature of ancient Egyptian civilization, many of the great works of ancient Egypt depict gods, goddesses, and Pharaohs, who were also considered divine. Ancient Egyptian art is characterized by the idea of order.
Political and religious, as well as artistic, order was also maintained in Egyptian art.
