With Wall fragments, ancient Egyptian artists produced three dimensional art on a two dimensional surface. This is the reason why almost all of the figures represented are carved in relief. These figures, on the walls of Egyptian tombs and temples, represented various Egyptian gods and rulers. These figures are usually depicted acting out myths, rituals and historical events.
Wall fragment illustrations are usually accompanied by text, in the form of hieroglyphs. Some hieroglyphics are visible on the top portion of the wall fragment. Short captions might describe the figures depicted and the actions taking place, while longer texts included requests for offerings for the dead, hymns to deities, works spoken by deities to the king, etc. The hieroglyphic texts within any scene typically formed an integral part of the whole composition.
