Ancient Lands

 

Books, jewellery and gifts inspired by the history and art of Ancient civilisations. Created in the Lower Nile Valley from c.3000 BC - 30 AD Ancient Egypt art spans painting, sculpture, architecture and artefacts such as jewellery discovered in tomb excavations. It was highly stylized, with a distinctive figure convention and extremely conservative, changing little over more than 3000 years. Fine examples can be seen in the British Museum and the Ashmolean. The art of Ancient Rome was stylistically eclectic, influenced by Greek, Etruscan and even Egyptian arts. Sculpture and painting were highly prized although only pockets of panel and fresco painting remain, most notably in Pompeii. Decorative arts included elaborate metal-work, gem engraving, mosaics and glass with fine collections in the British Museum, the Museum of London and Bignor Roman Villa.
