Some of forms of art exists everywhere on this planet The story of art as a continuous effort does not begin in the caves of southern France or among the North American Indians There is no direct tradition which links these strange beginings with our own days but there is a direct tradition handed down from master to student and from student and from student to asmirer or copyist which links the art of our own days any house or any poster with the art of some five thousand years ago Thus the art of Egypt has a tremendous important for us Everyone knows that Egypt is the land of the pyramids However mysterious they seem they tell us much of their own story This land was thoroughly organized by the kings who were so rich and powerful that they have thousands of workers and slaves We know that the pyramids had their practical importance in the eyes of the kings and their subjects The king was considered a divine being who held sway over them and on his departure from this earth he would again ascend to the gods whence he had come The combination of geometric regularity and sharp observation of nature is the characteristic of all Egyptian art We can study is baest in the reliefs and paintings that adorned the walls of the tombs The word adrned it is true may hardly fit an art which was meant to be seen by no one but the dead mans soul In fact these works were not to intended to be enjoyed They were meant to keep alive Once in a grim distant past it had been the custom when a powerful man died to let his servants and slaves accompany him into grave
