The sarcophagus is very detailed and colorful. It requires great skill to add so much detail to a piece of art. The Egyptians had art as a big part of their culture, and this sarcophagus shows this. They also were good at showing what faces looked like. This is a great piece of art, especially because it was made for a dead body.

I love ancient Egyptian art it is colorful and really unique. Afterlife is so important to them . They spent so much time decorating and preserving corpses. Beautiful
