Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)

Art We Heart: HolidaysArt We ♥ is a hand-selected art feature, chosen by deviantART staff members, showcasing art we believe the community will enjoy.:iconestunt:Some thoughts from Matt (mattdanna)Being raised Roman Catholic, Christmas is a big ordeal for my family. On Christmas Eve, we would always celebrate Christmas with my Mom's side of the family and we would participate in this weird yankee swap gift exchange.

Unfortunately, I always ended up with a gag gift.

Byzantine ArtSome history…Byzantium was the name given to the Eastern part of the Roman Empire. Known by many other names, such as Romania, it was born under the ruling of Diocletian when he divided the Roman Empire in two parts: Western and Eastern, in 286. It stretched roughly through the East of Italy, Greece and the Anatolian Peninsula – in some periods covering as far as the Northern coast of Africa and South Andalusia. It endured attacks from Barbarians, Sassanids, Persians, Arabs and Slavics until the famous falling of Constantinople in 1453.Lasting some 1000 years more than its twin Western Roman Empire, Byzantium retained and developed the Greco Latin heritage with some aspects of its own , and always dreamt of restoring the original universality of the (whole) Roman Empire.Paleo byzantine period (324- 7th century)Roman tradition is followed in the arts during these first yea
