Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The ancient Egyptians: they had pyramids, they had temples, they had tombs, they also had a sense of humour Just like humans the world over, people in ancient Egypt delighted in a good laugh. This lighter side of pharaonic life has, in the past, been frequently overlooked. It is not widely known among the educated public, for example, that Egyptian artisans occasionally introduced touches of comic relief into tomb chapel decoration of the elite, in both picture and word. A glimpse into their humorous side is also readily apparent from drawings on numerous limestone ostraca and several papyri, many featuring the amusing antics of various birds and beasts, who were often engaged in human activities. In surveying the subject of wit and humour, this work examines what was considered funny in ancient Egypt. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Not everyone is aware of the fact but the ancient Egyptians did possess a sense of humour. Patrick Houlihan's interesting and well illustrated study looks for examples of Egyptian wit and humour in their literature and art to determine what it was that made ancient Egyptians smile. These include instances of verbal humour, comical temple decorations and depictions of animals, caricatures or humorous sexual situations on papyri and ostraca.
