Originally, the #structure was going to be a three-tiered structure that jutted out from a wall in St. Peters #Basilica . Adorning the #tomb , Michelangelo planned to have 47 statues showing various figures creating a dynamic space and a true statement on the #importance of #Julius .
The project, however, was interrupted many times. For four years, starting in #1508 , Michelangelo was occupied with the #daunting task of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. After the death of the Pope, the scale of the tomb was greatly reduced. It would become a smaller, two-tiered #monument with a few smaller statues, columns, centered around a figure of #Moses in the church of St. Pietro in #Vincoli .
For Michelangelo, this marked an #important#creation in his career; this tomb would be his first architectural project. Combining #architecture and #sculpture it would also take cues from his painting. After he completed the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo got back to work on the tomb in 1513.
At the center of the monument was a seated figure of Moses. He is shown sitting, holding stone #tablets containing the #TenCommandments from #God . The figure of Moses may look familiar after seeing Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel. Many of the figures Michelangelo painted: prophets, sibyls, and various biblical figures, are shown seated in relaxed poses with one leg bent straight down and the other bent with the foot further back. This common pose creates a continuity of Michelangelo’s prophetic figures. A viewer can see this pose and know that the figure is special and chosen by God to teach his people. Just as the prophets on the ceiling hold their books, Moses holds his #stonetablets .
Michelangelo himself thought this statue of Moses was among his best works – and many viewers agree.

Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh is an astonishing exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery until May.
It'll be the last time these items are seen outside Egypt, as they're due to return to a permanent purpose-built museum in Cairo, in time to celebrate the centenary of the tomb's discovery in 1922.
Everyone should make the effort to see it. It's humbling and spectacular - a bizarre and yet hauntingly familiar world of love, life, death, power, religion and magic from 3,500 years ago. ( 10/10 )

Egyptian Tomb from the Egptian Adventure edition of Clue/Cluedo.
Before I draw each environment drawing I make sure I have drawn in the perspective lines and the vanishing points, years ago as a junior artist I would just guess where these are and my drawings looked a lot weaker because of it. I loved looking through lots of Egptian tomb reference. I went on holiday a few years ago to Egypt and visited the tombs at The Valley of the Kings. I was sad to see it had been so poorly looked after.
