        This art nouveau web set was created ostensibly for an Egyptian themed web page.  The page features classic symbols of Egypt: sphynx, lotus, and scarab with jewels.  I believe this design would work equally well for a business or personal site on general Egyptology, mythology, or perhaps antiques.  The navigation is designed to go at the top of the page as shown (the words are not hot linked, that is something you would do, and you can change the menu words to suit your site).  A web site title can be fit between the two top graphics as this page demonstrates.   The font I used in this example is called "Asrafel."  If you don't have a graphic program capable of making the title you need, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the scarab graphic divider and jewel bullet designed for this page.  I also created a bottom of the page navigation piece so that people won't have to scroll to the top of the page always.

divider

jewel bullet The sphynx figure depicted in this web set is a combination of the two ancient types of sphynx, the Greek and the Egyptian.  The Egyptian version is a male head on a lion's body, with a pharaonic headdress, and is a symbol of power and vigilance. The Greek equivalent consists of a woman's head and breasts on a lion's body, usually with wings.  The Greeks regarded the sphynx as a repository of arcane knowledge.  The title graphic sphynx are clearly female, but they are wearing the Egyptian headdress.  The combination of the two types of sphynx is common in art nouveau.  An example of Egyptomania, a well-documented craze which swept the western world following the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in 1925.
jewel bullet The lotus is featured prominently in Egyptian art and architecture, especially in connection with Egypt's temples. In Egyptian mythology, the lotus was associated with the sun, because it blooms by day and closes by night.  The lotus also symbolized rebirth, since one Egyptian creation myth tells of the newborn sun god rising out of a floating lotus.
jewel bullet Scarab Beetle (kheper): It seemed to the ancient Egyptians that the young scarab beetles emerged spontaneously from the burrow were they were born.  Therefore they were worshipped as "Khepera," which means "he was came forth." This creative aspect of the scarab was associated with the creator god Atum.
