Ancient Egypt's History

Middle Kingdom - Decorative Arts



The Middle Kingdom was also a time when superb works in the decorative arts were produced—in particular, jewelry made of precious metals inlaid with colored stone. The art of faience (tin oxide-glazed earthenware) achieved a new importance for the manufacture of amulets and small figures. Perhaps best known are the blue-glazed hippopotamuses decorated with painted water plants.
