The Cosmetics of Ancient Egyptians The topic I chose for my essay is cosmetics of Ancient Egyptians. I chose this topic because I did some research on different things and this concept grabbed my interest the most. I would like to know what type of cosmetics the Ancient Egyptians used and why they wore their makeup. This essay will discuss how the Ancient Egyptians wore their makeup, how they made their cosmetics, why they wore makeup, how they stored their makeup, medicine uses of cosmetics, and cosmetic palettes. Ancient Egyptians used a variety of cosmetics.
The other aspect believed by Egyptians that made up the human being along with the "Ba" was the "Ka", the spirit that stayed in the heart. It has been studied that, "the earliest mummies from prehistoric times probably were accidental" ("Encyclopedia Smithsonian: Egyptian Mummies"). Because of Egypt’s dry and sandy climate, the dead bodies buried in shallow pits that were dug into the sand, were dehydrated of the dryness which created natural, unintended mummification. Around 3200BCE, burial chambers were introduced which led to purposeful mummification. At first they used linen bandages and sometimes plaster that was provided during the Old Kingdom by using a mixture of salts known as natron.
At this point, Egyptians had spent 350 years as a province of The Ottoman Empire, when Napoleon comes in with a modern army, modern laws, and a printing press; you can see the shock to Egyptian society—and indeed, the whole of the Ottoman Empire (Tv tropes History of modern Egypt). In 1805, an Albanian officer in the Ottoman Army named Muhammad Ali became governor. Based on what the French had done, Muhammad Ali began modernizing Egypt, creating a European-style bureaucracy, establishing a military on Western lines, building a navy, constructing arsenals for the manufacture of modern weapons, building schools, and adopting a new cash crop for Egyptian farmers to raise and sell to Europe, and particularly Britain, whose cotton-hungry textile mills were leading the Industrial Revolution. From this point on, Egypt was more or less independent of the Sultan (Tv tropes History of modern Egypt). However, Muhammad Ali was also something of a traditionalist, regarding Egypt as his own personal domain and was more or less a traditional Middle Eastern despot.
Humans use dogs in many ways and the interaction has revolved from the use of dogs as hunting tools or guardian of homes to keeping them as pets. In history, dogs were initially bred for hunting purposes, as an instrument and a mean of survival for hunters. Taking terriers as an example, it was once bred to control small animals like rats, rabbits, foxes and hunt badgers by creeping into the ground to drive them out. However, with technology advancement and better living standards, majority of humans do not require to rely on dogs for hunting, the primary purpose for breeding terriers is to serve as pets. We treat dogs as pets, and developing a new form of relationship with our pets, which in turn leads to dogs losing their connection to their practical use for hunting.
