In conjunction with authentic Egyptian designs for the film, Italian artist Matania produced a number of paintings of Egypt for Hollywood director Cecil B. DeMille's masterpiece, "The Ten Commandments." Blessed with a photographic memory, the artist employed it fully in this Egyptian Revival work that captures the splendor of the ancient world from haughty Queen Nefertiti in her royal chariot to the beauty of the temple horses with their dancing plumes. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones. 55½"Wx40"H.
