Egyptian culture and Mesopotamian culture developed simultaneously but each had different priorities and followed different artistic conventions. Compare and contrast the art created by these two cultures. Use examples when appropriate.

When looking into the Egyptian cultures art pieces and the Mesopotamian art pieces, I noticed 1 big similarity. both cultures built huge monuments for their gods/kings. The Egyptians with their pyramids and sphinx’s while the Mesopotamians made ziggurats. A difference between the two cultures artworks was that when it came to the Egyptians, I noticed they used gold and steel a lot and they put much more detail when doing collages of their gods/kings. while the Mesopotamians mainly used stone as their go-to material to make their artworks.
