Fayum mummy portraits
Фаюмски портрети
Category: Roman art
Language: Bulgarian


   The Fayum portraits were created by the people of a flourishing district of Roman Egypt during the first three centuries AD. In the old Egyptian tradition, these people embalmed the bodies of their dead, but then they placed over the mummy, a painted portrait to preserve the memory of each individual. The portraits belong to the tradition of panel painting in Ancient Rome, one of the most highly regarded forms of art in the Classical world. Over 1000 portraits have so far been discovered of men, women and children.
