Both Egypt and Mesopotamia represented their leaders as a larger figure to represent greatness. Egypt tends to represent them even larger though, like COLOSSAL FIGURE OF AKHENATEN. Both cultures had a strong representation of their people and animals. Both had relief pieces, depicting greatness. An example being Egypt’s THE PALETTE OF KING NARMER, Mesopotamia’s Carved Vessel from Uruk. Both of these pieces had scenes representing, leadership, servitude, and animals. Egyptians built pyramids, Mesopotamia built ziggurats. Both had great architectural skill, but structures differed, Egypt with structures like the Great Pyramids, Mesopotamia with Anu Ziggurat. The pyramids built from granite, the ziggurats built from a less durable material.
