Yeah, that's what they told you. Again, why would a fictional character be depicted in a state building? We try to make characters out of Native Americans too. Redskins, Braves, etc. And they are still alive, despite great efforts to make them disappear. If they weren't alive to tell their story, we'd think the were fictitious too.

To those who have researched the use of color in ancient Egypt how accurate is this?


Quote:
An Egyptian male, for example, was always depicted with a reddish-brown skin which was achieved by mixing a certain amount of the standard red paint recipe with standard brown. Variations in the mix would occur in different eras but, overall, remained more or less the same. This color for the male's skin was chosen for realism in the piece, in order to symbolize the outdoor life of most males, while Egyptian women were painted with lighter skin (using yellow and white mixes) since they spent more time indoors.

Have you been reading C.A Diop and Dr. Ben Jochannan? If so keep in mind that the types of DNA testing that's being done today weren't around during Diop's and Dr. Ben's day. So both men were limited with how well they could breakdown the racial makeup of the ancient Egyptians.
