Hatshepsut’s reign as pharaoh strongly emphasised her close relationship and devotion to the god Amun. According to Lawless, Hatshepsut did more than any other Pharaoh to raise the status of Amun beyond all other gods. She achieved this by emphasising her filial relationship with the god, most evident in the divine birth scene in her mortuary temple at Deir El Bahri and through the Oracle, which was later inscribed on the walls of the Red Chapel at Karnak. These pieces of evidence are vital in explaining Hatshepsut’s devotion to Amun. However, the relationship between Hatshepsut and Amun was a reciprocal arrangement as through the glorification of her father she promoted the priesthood and rewarded them for their support towards her legitimacy which led to their growth in wealth and political power during her reign.
Throughout history, the conquering of lands has held a large contribution in the development of various civilizations.

This also illustrated her well managed authority, because all of the goods brought back were used to fund her enormous architectural projects, which was also a large achievement from her rule (Salisbury “Hatshepsut”). Throughout her rule, Hatshepsut took on many different architectural projects, such as building a set of majestic obelisks with inscriptions and the repairing of different shrines around the civilization (Cooney 225; Salisbury “Hatshepsut”). These projects, which took many years to complete and cost a fortune, were a physical

In ancient Egypt government and religion were really close. The Pharaoh has been the leader of the Egyptians since the beginning of Egypt. He was the ruler of the people recognized as the common, that includes the slaves, and of the people who had a great deal of money. He can construct laws, demolish laws, lead his army of men. The Pharaoh was helped by a hierarchy of advisors, priests, officials, and administrators, who were responsible for the concern of the state and the well-being of the people.
Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself.

With Mukhtar’s work, power was not represented through wealth or grand tombs but by sculpting portraits and statues of strong people that helped lead Egypt to nationalism and embrace their culture and history. In his own way, Mukhtar sculpted the Pharaohs of his time, the people that would have the most power to him and lead in the most relatable and contemporary way to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. The individuals that Mukhtar sculpted had a strong impact on Egypt’s people similar to the impact that Pharaohs did during ancient Egypt.

It is inconceivable that some of this art was created thousands of years ago, given the intricacy and mesmerizing beauty of some of the pieces there. The exhibits that captured my imagination the most were those collections from the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman civilization.
