This paper discusses funerary art of the Amarna period in Egypt: 1372-1350 BC. It looks at how Amarna art differs from the stylized representations found in older art forms. The paper focuses on examining the canopic jar as it appears in the Amarna period and then compares these to earlier art on these objects. The paper includes photographs for visual explanation. It suggests that technology played a major role in the development of art throughout the period.
