Egyptian Religion and Art
Nowhere in history do we find a religion more oriented around nature than in ancient Egypt. In Egyptian art one finds remarkably precise observations flora and fauna. They are easily identified by contemporary biologists. But Egyptian art also shows the way nature affects the soul, and reveals a spiritual light deep inside all natural phenomena. This was accomplished with subtle exaggeration and distortion. Thus, Egyptian artists were equally precise when depicting the details of either the inner and outer world, and they were remarkably adept at revealing that these logically incompatible worlds constitute a single seamless reality.
