Art History 103A Akhenaton and King Tut in Egypt Videos and Discussions

Questions:

1) Why was Akhenaton considered a heretic?

2) How did Akhenaton change Egyptian Art?  How was it different than things from the past?

3) Why is Tut's tomb so important if he was not considered a very important king?

4) Does the art from King Tut's tomb return to earlier traditions or  does the art perpetuate Akehenaton's changes? Provide an example to explain your point of view.
