The Middle Kingdom
The Middle Kingdom came after the collapse of the Pharaoh's power in 2134BC.
Egypt was in a period of political unrest and bad
Middle Kingdom pharaohs tended to be personal rather than institutional.
The result was a less conservative
style, a loosening of the old rules.
Some characteristics of the new style are foreshortening of the shoulders on the
people and a second ground line.
The result is a newly found sense of depth.
