Dawn of Egyptian Art

Diana Craig Patch

The objects made during the Predynastic and Early Dynastic periods (c.4400–2649 BCE) provide the best means of examining how the ancient civilization in the Nile Valley gave rise to Pharaonic Egypt. Discussing 183 items, from a bowl inscribed for King Djet (c.3050 BCE) to the stela of King Raneb (c.2880 BCE), this volume reflects on the early Egyptians’ representations of people, animals and the landscape, and their reasons for making these objects.
