Most of Brunton's portaits were used in illustration of two books; The Kings and Queens of Ancient Egypt, and The Great Ones of Ancient Egypt. Brunton observed the statues in the museums and the reliefs in tombs to reproduce the details of the faces of these ancient rulers and nobles, and their costumes. She accurately reproduced the clothing as shown in the Egyptian art of each period. While some scholars think she accentuated the glamour of the portaits, most believe that she has faithfully captured the Egypt of the past.
This screensaver presents these beautiful portaits on a magic background that chooses it's color based on the colors in the portrait.
