    Work must have done by the same artists who did the Sigiria frescos. After finishing the work at Sigiria they must have taken
    a new "contract " in Giza / Egypt & later took asylum there.

    People talk nonsense by comparing these to the Sigiriya frescos
    There is approximately over a 3000 year old gap between the two. These paintings in Egypt were done in 2500 BC and the sigiriya frescoes were done in 495 AD. Thats a time span of over 3000 years, so there is no connection between the two.

    Wow..

    sunilp - How could that be? These frescoes in Egypt were done over 4500 years ago in 2500 BC, where as Sigiriya frescos were done around 480AD a mere 1530 year ago, the difference of about 3000 years between to two.

    It’s interesting to analyse the colours used in these frescos and those at Sigiriya. Can anyone pass this message? HK
