For my year 11 art coursework, we had to study african art, but because I was in Egypt at the time it was set, I was allowed to do Egyptian art Very Happy
We have to do lots of research on things such as costumes, dancing, celabrations, and masks.

For costumes, I'm talking about the linen garments, the wigs, headdresses, and crowns. I might also talk about the jewellery they wore.
I only really know the name of one wig, and that's a nubian wig.
For headdresses I can only think of the nemes, and the plume headdresses. For crowns, I'm looking at Nefertiti's blue crown.
I was just wondering if anyone can think of anymore ideas?
Because I don't have very many, as I don't really know much about costumes.

And one final thing, we have to do a big final piece at the end of the unit showing a celebration. I thought of maybe painting a heb-sed festival or an Opet festival. But I don't know. I can't find many good pictures on the internet that I can use to help me.

Any help is much appreciated Very Happy
