Ancient Eqypt: Tomb Paintings

We've learned that the paintings in the Ancient Egyptian tombs were often pictures of things the deceased wanted to have in the after-life -- things that would keep him/her comfortable when they "woke" from the dead.

Here is what we would want painted on our tomb walls -- note the names are all in hieroglyphs ...

(from l-r, top to bottom): LegoManiac, Mom, String Bean & Bam-Bam.

BTW, we used the Stone Beeswax crayons for the first time -- they work great with wonderful color coverage. They can blend nicely and you can adjust the amount of color by the pressure on the crayons. Plus, they give off a heavenly bee-honey smell.
