Ancient Egyptian clothes refers to clothing worn in ancient Egypt from the end of the Neolithic period prior to BC to the collapse of the Ptolemaic Kingdom with the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC. Egyptian clothing was filled with a variety of colors. Adorned with precious gems and jewels, the fashions of the ancient Egyptians were made for not only beauty but also comfort.

CAIRO AP — An armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked in the streets during an attack last week in which seven Christian homes were also looted and torched in a province south of the Egyptian capital. Police have arrested six men suspected of taking part in the violence and are looking for 12 more, the security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi called for the culprits to be held accountable and gave the military a month to restore property damaged during the violence, at no cost to the owners.
John Singer Sargent has, since the latter half of the twentieth century, seen a resurgence in popularity for his technical brilliance as a portrait artist. The critics may have never forgiven Sargent for being one of the premier "commercial" painters of the late nineteenth century; indeed, in the s, Sargent had firmly established his presence as the artist in demand on an international scale.

Wars and revolutions like the one in Egypt demand symbols: photos like Robert Capa's "Falling Soldier" from the Spanish Civil War, the image of a Vietnamese girl running away out of a village that had been bombed with napalm, or that of a boy raising his arms in the Warsaw ghetto. Photos like these simplify the world. They reduced politics to emotions: fear, horror, hope.
EGYPT - Wearing nothing but a pair of stockings, red ribbon in her hair and pair of flat red shoes, the black and white shot would not look out of place in a nude photography book. But this is no ordinary art project. It is the work of a feminist Egyptian activist who is making a bold and potentially dangerous statement. The picture in question shows Elmahdy completely naked and uncensored, angering many Egyptians.
Do not pamper your body: this will make you weak. And do not pamper yourself in your youth, or you will become weak in old age. The importance attached to good grooming throughout Egyptian society should never be underestimated.
