Description

Following the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922, the western world was obsessed with anything Egyptian. The treasure recovered was of such great quality and design, that dress, jewelry, architecture and many other mediums were influenced with ancient Egyptian motifs such as the scarab beetle or lotus flower. The “Art Deco” movement (commencing in the mid 1920’s), has many of it’s roots firmly planted in the art of ancient EgyptIn this piece we clearly see Egypt’s influence in the small table that the girl is leaning upon. She is also dressed in ‘roaring 20’s’ revealing fashion.
