Hathor, Anubis, Sekhmet, and Canopic Jars: Egyptian Clip Art

In celebration of Howard Carter’s birthday, I offer a selection of free Egyptian clip art images.

I’ve been interested in Egyptian art and history since I was very young. I was in grade school when the 1st exhibition of King Tutankhamen’s booty made the rounds in the late 1970s, but unfortunately failed to convince my folks to take me to New York to see the show at the Met. They did, however, give to me many books on Egypt that I still own, and for many years my mother would take me to the University of Penn Museum for my birthday.

Today Google, by way of their “Google Doodle”, informed me that today is the birthday of Howard Carter, the co-discover of King Tutankhamen’s tomb. And so in tribute of that obscure tit-bit, here are a few image selections from my copy of The Story of the Pharaohs by Rev. James Baikie, F.R.A.S., 1917. Click on the images for larger versions that can be used as free clip art.

Beware! This is One Powerful Witch!

Beware! This is One Powerful Witch!

Vintage Halloween postcard with a pretty witch holding her broom aloft, although here it looks as if she is more interested in shooing away the bats than she is on riding it. Notice the candle with the profile of a man.

The postcard reads:

I’ts best beware
Of the Witching hour
In which the Witches
Show their power. 

A scan from my collection of antique postcards, I hope that you find it useful! I’m on Facebook, like my Miss Mary page to find out when more great free clip art is added to this site.

And never return, till next Hallowe’en.
