This is a collection of hand drawn egyptian style textures drawn by me with the exception
of the detail / relief wall designs. All of the textures that I have created draw inspiration from patterns,
textiles, walls and ancient jewellery of Egypt.
Due to not much realistically remaining of the original Egyptian architecture, some of the patterns
and styles that I have used will have other influences. Towards the end of the Egyptian empire, Roman/Greek
influence were very strong. With some temples being modified with niche and flanking columns of Roman
During much of the Late Period, the Egyptian empire was ruled by outside forces. Some of these new rulers
sysmatically destroyed temples and large sections of Egypt's past. Eventually in AD 383 the coming of
Christianity ordered all pagan temples throughout the empire to be closed. Followed closely by persecution
of pagans and destruction of their religious structures, this really was the final nail in the coffin.
Eventually Egypt's ancient pharaonic past became just stories and legends, as the people who built these mighty
structures moved on and forgot the past. The few temples which were abandoned and were distant from major
populations fared best and remain today as the most perfectly preserved examples.
