Originally published August , 2009 | Indianapolis Examiner | by Kim Jackson

Ms. Jackson discusses typical New Kingdom tomb art, focusing on the reality of fashion and its significance in art; each genders' roles in tomb art and the significance of each genders' activities; and the purposeful selection of certain every day activities by artists, which was less a handbook to life in Egypt and more of a way to portray certain distinctions in the physical world.

The author ends the article with a link to an article at the Tour Egypt web site on the Amarna Period.
