This funerary stela depicts a man named Intef. He and his wife are seated in front of a laden offering table. The couple had several children and all are shown paying tribute to their parents. This stela dates to the Middle Kingdom and originates from Abydos. #egyptology #archaeology #ancientegypt #hieroglyphs #hieroglyphics #stela #abydos #egyptianmuseum #arthistory #cairo
Day 22, Joyful October Instagram Challenge: 'Learning'. What is this, you may ask? It's the Rosetta Stone! I just happened on a postcard of it among my things earlier. And what is it?  It's a lump of granite carved with roughly the same text in three different languages. (Greek, Egyptian hieroglyphs, and Egyptian demotic, i.e. non-pictorial script.) Though it took a while for anyone to realise this, and then a big while longer till all three were decoded. The Greek wasn't the problem, it was the other two.  The significance was that now people could understand all those weird pictures and symbols used in the tomb inscriptions, and start to get an understanding of Egyptian culture and imagery. And if that's not learning, I don't know what is.  Anything that could give further insight into those wonderful, overwhelming and utterly distinctive tomb paintings was a huge addition to knowledge. . . @alisonmwoodcom #joyfuloctober #instagram #wordoftheday #learning #language #hieroglyphs #egyptian #demotic #culture #tombs #inscriptions #history #champollion #translation #egyptianart #tombpaintings  #pharaohs #art #script #writing #text
Archaeologists just discovered a super secret chamber inside the Pyramid of Giza containing $500 Billion in gold and this tablet  describing an invention of incalculable value. 🔥🔥🔥#lighterbro #multitool @lighterbro @lighterbro @lighterbro LighterBro.com
I have to interrupt my usual program for something a little different. Some of you know, that I have been working with writing systems from a design perspective, and that my research is very close to my heart. In the past 6 months I have been in a mentorship program with @arabictype and have looked into what further steps I can take to move into academia as a PhD candidate.  I have streamlined my past work on this into a literature review, that can be read in full on my website. The link is in my bio.  #designer #graphicdesigner #typedesign #womeninacademia #research #type #typegang #typeography #hieroglyphs #writingsystems #writing #reading #science #designerresearcher #designresearch #designtheory #designschool

‘Befuddled Logo’ . . Composed of two desaturated hands with a rather low exposure level merged onto a single human eye with a blue iris. Letter ‘B’ strategically placed in between the hands, on iris. With a finishing touch of noise the signature style of the artist. © Befuddled 2018 . . #befuddled #beffudledmuch #photoshopart #photoshopartist #digitalartist #digitalart #digital #art #illustrations #illustrationgram #instartist #photoshop #surreal #surrealism #surrealart #surrealartistry  #surrealist #surrealists #surrealizm #surrealistart #eyeofra #horus #egyptian #mythology #hieroglyphs #openyourthirdeye
