As we’ve studied, animals were very important to ancient Egyptians – some were considered sacred, while others were used for farming or other domesticated activities. Choose one animal listed below and post a discussion board essay about the animal’s purpose in ancient Egyptian art. IN YOUR OWN WORDS, describe what the animal represented, where they would be depicted in art scenes, what deity it was associated with (if any), etc. This post should be two paragraphs minimum.
