This beautifully illustrated probe into Egyptology covers many topics including the importance of the Nile, the role of the gods, fashion and clothing, the pyramids, the secrets of hieroglyphics, and the enigma of the Sphinx, to name a few. Fletcher (freelance Egyptologist and director of the NILE educational organization) interprets themes relevant to ancient Egyptian civilization in the light of iconography, pattern, motif, symbolism, and historical and spiritual significance. Specially commissioned artwork, maps and color photographs showcase the culture against the broad context of the civilization's wisdom, spirituality and mythology. Oversize: 10.5x10.5
