Animals and Deities
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.

Students should make every effort to demonstrate in their responses that they have understood the assigned readings. Responses to peers should also be substantial and contribute to the discussion of the topic.
Should be 75 to 150 words, but may go longer depending on the topic. If you use any source outside of your own thoughts, you should reference that source. Include solid grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling.
