Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Near East, mythology, goddesses, monsters, etc.

I am only a lay student in these areas, so take what I say with a grain of salt!

My goal is to accurately label every post: please tell me if you see something that's not correctly attributed, tagged, or captioned.

I am also ikhet-sekhmet.livejournal.com.

 

"Painted relief fragment depicts a carpenter squatting on a scaffolding and working on a wooden object with his adze. Contrary to custom he is shown dishevelled and unshaven."

Occasionally you do get a non-stylised portrait popping up in Egyptian art. I wonder if this chap was someone the artist knew, or had observed. (Further to my postings of the other day, I wonder if his hair is not “dishevelled”, but afro-textured.)
