Artists & Craftsmen


Good craftsmen were appreciated in ancient Egypt. They usually lived comfortable lives. But, craftsmen were not allowed to sign their work. Still, word got around if someone had talent.

Artists had a special way of drawing or painting people. You would be very uncomfortable if you tried to stand in the same position artists painted people. The Egyptians drew heads, eyes, legs, and feet as if you were looking at them from the side. They drew shoulders and chests as if you were looking at them from the front. (You can see this in the picture at the top of this page.) It was uniquely Egyptian, and very distinctive. Men were usually drawn with dark colors and women with light colors.
