This page is dedicated to the decorative art of Ancient Egypt, so that all the patterns you can see here are millennia-old.

On this page we also publish patterns from the arts of various neighboring peoples, such as the Babylonians, Hittites, Persians, Assyrians, etc. Ancient Egypt was a civilization that lasted for 3000 years continuously, and during that time their art hardly changed at all. As for the ancient Egyptians, art did not exist to enjoy beauty, but had a much greater significance and was closely linked to the state, religion and symbolism. It is for this reason that it changed little during the 3000 years of its existence; it did not fall under foreign influence, there was no individual artistic expression, and symbolism had a tremendous influence. The art of Ancient Egypt had a great influence on the neighboring peoples, e.g. the art of Ancient Greece and Rome and the large number of decorative patterns and motifs these peoples used to decorate with had actually originated in Ancient Egypt. All the patterns you can download here have been made by careful manual tracing in 2D CAD or vector software. We mostly traced images from old books that covered ancient Egyptian art and architecture, also images of artifacts, woodcuts, papyrus and statues found on the Internet. All the patterns in this collection are free, and we hope you are happy with the selection and quality of the ones you have been offered.
