The Study of the Visual Effects of Depth Creations and Perspectives in New Egyptian Archeological Discoveries


Many researchers have worked on the analytical study of the ancient Egyptian art executed in two dimensions as paintings or reliefs depending on the famous squared grid, which was the main guide for the artist to maintain standard proportions in drawing. But in this research I have attempted to base my own analysis and theories that may be put forward to study how the ancient Egyptian artist creates techniques to influence a sense of perspective using the decrease in size to the visual plane. There have been several recognizable elements used by the artist to give depth to their compositions. Although he accepted the drawing surface as flat and created the visuals through a series of symbols arranged over the flat surface, but the detailed analytical study of some objects revealed his attempts to copy the objects as they are seen in nature showing a beginning of a perspective study and depth. The importance of the study lies in it's application on the recent Egyptian archeological discoveries announced by the Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities - aiming to understand more about the ancient Egyptian arts and exploration of the Egyptian civilization - based on the work of the Egyptian archaeological missions in various sites in Saqqara. Which comes within the framework of the state's support to conduct archaeological excavations and preserve the ancient Egyptian civilization.
