The most ancient writing
material, the papyrus, was manufactured using an aquatic plant
long-cultivated in the delta of the river Nile. This graceful plant,
Cyperus papyrus (family Ciperaceae) grows up to 15 feet high. Its
green, triangular stem bears long, sharp leaves, and radiating flower
clusters, 10 to 20 inches long, which bloom at the tip.
Each of our paintings on this ancient paper tell a significant story
from ancient times. Many of these scenes were sketched from the
carvings found at various historical sites within Egypt. All of our
scenes are hand painted.
