About Egyptian gods

The Egyptians mostly often conceived of their gods as part animal, and they therefore depicted them as half animal, half human. Most of their gods have a human body and an animal head. When you see Egyptian relief carvings and wall murals for the first time, they’re hard to get your head around. It makes you wonder if the ancient Egyptians had a ‘kink’ in their optics. It’s essential to know that the Egyptians represented nature in a completely different way than we’re used to. Their artists weren’t interested in reproducing reality as it looks – what mattered was to paint what was important for the client. This distinctive Egyptian style had a set of fixed rules that every artist learned from an early age. Egyptian artists had to leave out everything that was unimportant – the images were meant to fulfill a certain function and only ever show the most important things: A head is best recognized in profile, so it was drawn from the side. The upper body, shoulders, and chest are shown better from the front, so they were drawn from the front. Arms and legs are again more noticeable when seen from the side, so the artists depicted them from the side. This is why Egyptians look so flattened and twisted in their images.
