As with much of the ancients Egyptian Mythology, there are various versions of the story of Judgement of Hunefer before Osiris and basically is run as following first Hunefer’s induction into the afterlife. In fact, The judgment of Hunefer before Osiris and consequently came to know as god of the afterlife. The god of death.

Hunefer’s heart is weighted on the scales on the left, weighted doesn’t seem to fit this context. I suggest you using weighed.
Egyptian figures form rectangles and triangles. The plural word form does not appear to agree with the singular subject clothing.
Something which throws off the balance in my opinion is the balance weight the feather against the heart which seems to be more to the right side of the painting. You are missing commas
Anubis is wearing mostly green and orange and a little bit of white in his skirt. The white color represent One color that stands out in the painting is the pinkish-purplish hair of Ammit. The plural word represent does not appear to agree with the singular subject white color.

The reason why I chose the painting of the Judgement of Hunefer Before Osiris is because I wanted to learn more about this beautiful illustration that captures the judgement of Henefer in the afterlife. You should change into that I.
wanted to learn more about this beautiful illustration that captures the judgement of Henefer in the afterlife. Egypt is known for their rich culture and what I found the most attractive aspects of this illustration is the mixture of Egyptian art of words. Judgement should have been replaced with judgment.
This was my first time analyzing a piece of art, and I’m glad I chose this unique work of the Judgement of Hunefer Before Osiris because I learned a lot about this paining and also about how to analyze a piece of art. The word paining doesn’t seem to fit this context. The word painting should have been used

The think about it question:
In this art history of the judgment of Hunefer before Osiris, some deities are depicted as a human with animal-like heads, while other the more supreme Gods are describing the royal humans. The scene in the picture of the artwork shows in the begins on the left, with Anubis, depicted with the head of a jackal, bringing a human, Hunefer, to a judgment area. On the other side, Anubis weighs Hunefer’s heart against a feather, that symbol shows what is correct. Depicted with the head of an ibis, the God Thoth stands to wait of record for his result.
2) Etruscan love of art

Etruscan love of art
“Describe and evaluate the subjects used in Etruscan tomb paintings and sarcophagi. How do Etruscan practices relate to what we have discovered about tombs in other ancient cultures (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018, p 215)”.
The Etruscans were the least familiar of the major classical Mediterranean cultures. Their civilization thrived in northern and central Italy before the Roman ruled the entire Italic peninsula long time ago as the center of an expanding empire (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018). Etruria, the region occupied by the Etruscans, was abundant in metals, mostly iron and copper. They were predominant bronzesmiths who exported their product all over the Mediterranean (Hemingway & Hemingway, 2004). Etruscans artist was also known for their special sophistication in casting and engraving on bronze throughout the Mediterranean world (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018). One of their greatest legacies is the beautifully painted tombs, which were seen in many sites like Tarquinia, Chiusi, Vulci, and Cerveteri. The paintings represent lively colorful scenes from Etruscan mythology and daily life (Cartwright, 2017). The Tomb of Reliefs, Tomb of the Triclinium, and the Sarcophagus from Cerveteri are some of the Etruscan fine artworks that prove their love of arts.
In the Tomb of the Reliefs, the tombs were carved out of the rock to look a lot like rooms in a house. The tomb was built with a flat ceiling and supported by square stone posts. The walls and piers are covered in carved and decorated with everyday objects including pots, jugs, robes, axes, mirror, and other items, which are molded and carved to look like real object hanging on the wall (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018). The Etruscans believe in life after death, which is the reason why most of their arts are centers on funerary practices and the tomb. They also believe that life carried on in a different kingdom of existence after death, so they equipped their departed loved ones with the necessary tools to live (Sandhoff, 2018).
The Tomb of the Reliefs (Cartwright, 2017)
Another fine example of artwork from Etruscan is the Tomb of Triclinium. This artwork was painted to replicate the architectural features of real houses. The distinct artifact and decorated wall-painting were young men and women play to the music of the lyre and double flute within the room as well as dancing and engaging with each other (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018). Mythical creatures are mostly painted on pillars and banquet scenes near the ceiling. The entire walls were also covered with ambitious painted scenes like diners reclining on couches, drinkers on mats, and figures bidding a fond farewell to the deceased (Cartwright, 2017).
The Tomb of the Triclinium (Cartwright, 2017)
The Sarcophagus of the spouses is another famous artwork from Etruscan. The sarcophagi (coffin) are made of clay or stone were the remains of the deceased were placed (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018). The main purpose of sarcophagi was to protect the body from being destroyed. Sarcophagi were elaborately decorated with intricate carving of the deceased. The sarcophagus of the spouses shows a husband and a wife affectionately reclining at the banquet in the afterlife (Kennedy, 2017). Instead of solemn memorial to the dead, this figure shows two lively individuals with open eyes, smiling, and holding each other to show or perhaps offering an invitation to dine with them for eternity (Stokstad & Cothren, 2018).
Sarcophagus of the spouses (Cartwright, 2017)
The Etruscan tombs paintings and sarcophagi have similarity with other ancient cultures. Just like Egyptian, they considered their tombs as a home for the dead. Also, Etruscan painters like to decorate their tombs walls with brightly colored scenes like dancing, feasting, and hunting and they celebrated it even with the time of death. The ancient Greek also believed that the spirit left the body after death but they did not put worldly objects in a grave, instead, they marked the grave elaborately to make sure that the deceased would never be forgotten. The use of sarcophagus was also been practice in other ancient cultures. The ancient Egyptians of the third dynasty made some of the earliest sarcophagi made of stone. Later, the ancient Egyptians created sarcophagi shaped like the bodies inside them. However, sarcophagi are not common in Greece until the fifth century (Kennedy, 2017).
Like any other ancient cultures, Etruscans have not to hand on any literacy record of their history, religion, and society. However, both Greek and Roman writers indicate that the Etruscan had wealthy and diverse literature, especially in the areas of divination and religion (de Puma, 1994).
