Summary
During this type period in Ancient Egypt, funerary portraits were attached to mummies after the embalming process. Most artwork from this time period has been destroyed or disintegrated.

In this episode of Palettes, viewers learn about the tradition and are provided with critical analysis of The European, one of the finest portraits created during the time period.
