When we think of Ancient Egyptian art, we tend to think of massive, yellowing and dark drawings of people interacting with gods.
But Ancient Egypt was a place of riotous, bright colours. Ancient Egyptians learnt to extract all sorts of bright colours in their paints, and the use of greens, blues, reds and yellows were all seen as signs of wealth and taste.
Many of the more-recent archaeological findings have unearthed beautiful murals on the walls of wealthier Ancient Egyptians, depicting the various elements that made life on the Nile possible. Pierangelo has drawn on these elements for these designs: blue, the symbol of the sky and the universe; green, the symbol of vegetation, fertility and health; the papyrus, symbol of regeneration; red, the colour of the Egyptian sun; and yellow, symbol of eternity, indestructibility or purity.
