Abstract

Communicating the passage of time and the sequence in which events unfold is an important consideration when representing complex visual narratives such as those attempted by ancient Egyptian artists. The emphasis in this paper is the investigation of notions of sequential time as represented in the wall art of the ancient Egyptians and the examination of the visual tools employed to create a sense of temporal sequence and consequentially a sense of the passage of time in the wall scenes.
