Ancient Egyptians displayed their relationship not only in art but in text. If it weren’t for the decipherment of hieroglyphs we may have never learned about their ideology. “The Judgement of Hunefer before Osiris’ gives us written text showing the steps to pass into the afterlife. This piece of art also depicts the interactions between men/women and gods after death. Giving us some insight into their ideology. Another example showing a connection between humans and gods is “The Palette of King Narmer’. In one panel Narmer is believed to be in the form of a bull knocking down the walls of enemies. Showing god like strength as a ruler. This was popular among Egyptians to use art to record and honor their relationships with the gods.
