A brief annotation This masterfully executed collection of coins is based upon the most famous of Ancient Egyptian myths: The Story of Osiris. The collection consists of artful and deftly minted representations of the five deities central to this epic tale. The distinctive aesthetic of Ancient Egyptian art is instantly recognizable and admired to this day, particularly since its austerely elegant and linear style was maintained by the Egyptians, almost without exception, for nearly three thousand years. The coin designs of this collection feature original artwork inspired by authentic, ancient examples, and include both figural and sculptural images of each god or goddess. A cartouche encircling the hieroglyphic form of the deity’s name complements each design, along with traditional decorative borders. The precise application of rich, enamel-like color brings to mind the jewel-like pigments favored by the ancients.
Designer Design: D.Glenn Brown (Creative Director, PAMP SA). Artist: Sabrina Luoni (Senior Designer, PAMP SA).

Египетское искусство впечатляет, а вот его воплощение на данной монете нет.
