Animal representations in Egyptian art appear in hieroglyphic script and architectural decoration, in sculpture, relief, painting, and other forms. This publication, a former Met Bulletin, explores the portrayal of birds, animals, and reptiles from a range of environments, including the Egyptian desert, wetlands and waterways, and the alluvial land. A brief history of animal representation in Egyptian art is also included.
