    Well to start off all of the Ancient Egyptian civilizations was based on religion. They strongly believed in the rebirth after deat, which led them to their funeral practices.Death was simply a temporary interruption, rather than complete cessation, of life, and that eternal life could be ensured by means like piety to the gods, preservation of the physical form through Mummification, and the provision of statuary and other funerary equipment. The Name and Shadow were also living entities. To enjoy the afterlife, all these elements had to be sustained and protected from harm. Ancient Egyptian art refers to the canonical 2D art developed in Egypt from 3000 BC and used until the 3rd century. Most elements of Egyptian art remained remarkably stable over the 3000 year period that represents the ancient civilization without strong outside influence. The same basic conventions and quality of observation started at a high level and remained near that level over the period.
