So, today I decided to share my new artwork with you guys! I’m a great lover of history and culture, so I try my best to kinda integrate that into my artwork! This new digital painting depicts the ancient Egyptian script known as Hieroglyphics.
Hieroglyphs comes from the Greek word ‘hieroglyphikos.’ ‘Hieros’ meaning Sacred, and ‘glypho’ meaning engrave.
The most fascinating thing about this ancient script is it’s complex phonetic system. Many archeologists worked to decipher it for hundreds of years with no avail. Finally in the 19th Century, Jean-Francois Champollion, a French scholar, managed to decipher the Hieroglyphs using the Rosetta Stone.
I’ve attached the Hieroglyphics / Latin chart! So now, you guys can write your names in Ancient Egyptian script!
That’s my name btw!
