The relief of the Victory Stele of Naram-Sin and the Narmer Palette are different; the Victory Steel of Naram-Sim is sculpted in a way that is protruding immensely from the palette while the Narmer Palette is very shallow in comparison (Cunningham, Pg. 16). 2. Each Palette is depicting a battle but they each have their own uniqueness. Victory Stele of Naram-Sin is showing the Pharaoh on an ascent through a battle ground towards the gods, his foes falling at his feet as he walks and others begging for mercy (Cunningham, Pg. 16). His warriors are following behind him with a confident and unwavering stance, showing their confidence in Naram-Sin and his leadership (Cunningham, Pg. 22). The Narmer Palette shows more of a sectioned off story, on one side it is showing Narmer, the Pharaoh, larger than any other person or god in the scene, depicting how much absolute power he had at this time (Cunningham, Pg. 22). The Palette shows the goddess Hathor watching over the events like it is an arena and the Falcon that symbolized the god Horus, with a rope around a head, possibly indicating the capture of Pharaoh of the other kingdom (Cunningham, Pg. 22). The back includes the battle scene and the goddess still watching over Narmer, as well as a bull knocking down a wall, most likely symbolizing Lower Egypt’s defeat as well as two creatures entangled with each other in unison

This example from the ruins of Karanis represents the type of devotional image an Isis cult worshiper would have used for private meditation, as it is a wall mural found in a person’s home. Isis was particularly popular among young women as a protector of girls and women and a role model of how they should live their lives. In this example, deviating a bit from the usual, Horus does not nurse from the breast Isis offers, but instead gestures to his mouth, referencing his role in opening the mouths of the dead for passage of the soul.
In this text, the author refers to the pharaoh by saying, “He is Re…,” “He is Khnum for all limbs,” “He is Bastet, who protects the Two Lands,” and “He is Sakhmet…” (Simpson 173). By directly referring to Senwosret as the sun god Re and the creator god Khnum, the text shows how the king was deified and idolized much like the important gods were. Personifying the pharaoh as Bastet and Sakhmet, who were the goddesses of protection and warfare, respectively, also demonstrates his protective nature and shows his determination to defend Egypt’s borders against the threat of its foreign neighbors.
Also they could symbolize creatures of myths and legend. However in this particular sphinx it symbolizes the royalty and power of King Taharqo. This is not a typical sphinx because this one was build for a black man. King Taharqo was a powerful and a great leader of the Kush kingdom located in Sudan, Africa.

I decorated the tomb the way I did because I believe that Ramesses the second was the best Pharaoh that ancient Egypt ever had. He believed that all of the people were important to him and that he would bring Egypt back to a better state. Ramesses the second ruled from c1279 to 1212. During this time he used diplomacy to build endless temples and tombs for the people of Egypt to use throughout the rest of eternity. He was allowed into the throne because of his family's military skills.

Other weapons of Hyksos invention are the khepesh, an upper body armour of leather and bronze scales and a shield fixed to the lower half and a battle-axe. A gold-plated copper head and cedar wood handle ceremonial battle axe decorated with electrum, jewels and motifs was found in Ahhotep the Younger’s tomb. The pharaoh’s famous ‘blue war crown’ was styled from a Hyksos helmet which also had a metal disc sown onto a leather headpiece.

In specific in the Poisonwood Bible, it is the family coming from the “West” over to the Congo. They brought over an attitude where they immediately looked down upon the Congo citizens. I think many of us can learn from this by not judging a book by its cover, which means don’t assume a group of people by what they look like, and where they live. Another symbol is the demonstration garden. The plants in the garden symbolize the attitudes and beliefs of the Prices in the Congo, because the plants are from the USA so they don’t grow well in Africa.

As shown in Figure 1, Tomb of the Leopards received its' title because of the artwork containing images of two leopards depicted in paint facing one another above the paintings of a banquet. In interpretation, the leopards symbolized hunting activities and perhaps suggest as the properties of the dead. The attendees of the banquet painted below the Leopards are composed of two pair of male and female in the left and right portions of the fresco and a pair of male in the middle, all of whom are dressed in brightly colours. In Etruscan art, females are depicted in fair skin tone whereas males are portrayed in a much darker skin tone, inspired by the Greek, being the convention among greek art depicting males and females during that period.
