In Egypt as in many other places, the concept of sculpture, painting and architecture overlap, and do so of necessity.  The architecture itself is a combination of all three.  Any detailed material related to Egyptian painting must of necessity include information about bas-relief as well as the painting of three dimensional images.  Any information about sculpture may include such things as the sculpture of architectural elements as well as free standing pieces.  So I hope you will find the listings below to be of use as they will incorporate all of these elements.

You will find even more included in the pages listed above.
