Egyptian tomb painters used oil lamps, and to stop the oil from smoking, salt was mixed in with the oil, I wonder what bright spark figured that out?

Salt, eh? I've never heard of that. Quite ingenious! Thanks for the information!

I often wonder if that part in Indiana Jones with all the mirrors to light up the tombs was a real deal or just added .

Wasn't that "The Mummy" with Brendan Fraser?

Most examples of Egyptian artworks like this seem to follow a strict theme adherence. Almost as if this style was intended to be viewed with contextual expectations.

If you look ate the people following the animal, its one person, two people, then three holding the rope. The sets seem to pose exactly as its overlap does. Guess a story teller from the time would be needed for a walk thru of the true symbolism of this picture book-mural.
