imagine that you were born in ancient Egypt in Thebes around the year 2000 BC. how being born in a different culture may affect you and your life?
If I had been born in Ancient Egypt around the year 2000 B.C., I feel like I would most certainly have been an artist of their culture as well because it is part of who I am and who I was born to be. [ Egyptian art and architecture developed independently and revolved around the concept of immortality. Pharaohs recognized that their nobility and eternal spirit depended greatly on the masons,
painters and sculptors they chose to reflect their lives and carry on their legacy. Therefore artisans were treated with great respect and were considered middle class. Respect and a sense of value are very important to me, and had I lived in Egypt during this age they would have been imperative also. I feel like art is a personal expression and would find it very difficult to conform to a social standard. My personally opinion is that art should be used to express abstract thoughts, religious views, cultural beliefs, life, fantasy and personal beliefs. ]
