Apologetics Links: Ancient Egyptian Archaeology

diggings.com.au is the website of the Australian-based archaeology magazine Archaeological Diggings. If you are interested in Biblical archaeology, it is definitely worth a read. I’ve found that it’s readily available in many local newsagencies in Melbourne.

291. Elfish Girl In Coloured Beeswax

September 22, 2008

Tinted beeswax crayon and graphite pencil on lined notepaper, August 2008.

Sometimes art is more fun when I just grab a notebook and start drawing. This came after a raid on my children’s pencil case. I have noticed a definite hint of Ancient Egyptian influence on the style of drawing I employ, with the person in profile, yet having a distored perspective as the eye is viewed front-on. Well, I can see this, even if no one else can!

I find Egyptian culture fascinating. Earlier this year I read a really interesting book, Unwrapping the Pharaohs, which offers an interesting possible harmonisation of Ancient Egyptian archaeology with that of the Ancient Hebrews. It’s written by Australian* authors John Ashton and David Down, and you kind find out more information at the publisher’s website. Click here for more information. I bought my copy from Koorong Books in Australia.

*That is, I’m reasonably certain they are Australian!
