A treasury of the best Ancient Egypt

I bought this book for myself. I teach about the Ancient Egyptian Gods & Goddesses, their myths & culture. This book in for all ages. The artist who illustrated this book used the colors the Ancient Egyptian used for their Deities. The artwork is breath-taking! It alone inspires the reader to linger, and even meditate on this art. I visited the temples of Ancient Egypt for two weeks on a spiritual writer's retreat. The art in this book matches the exquisite carving, statues and paintings I saw when I visited Egypt's valley of the kings. Buy this book as a gift for yourself or anyone who loves Egypt, their culture, Deities and their mythology. If I could give a higher rating, I would.
