The period is characterized by a flowering of the arts including the introduction of colossal statues, a new interest in painting, a high degree of craftsmanship in both royal and private sculpture, and elegant decorative and luxury arts. Notable architectural works include chapels, rock-cut tombs, and monumental stone temples for worship of the gods attesting to the rising power of the priesthood. A brief revolutionary episode especially in representational art occurred during the reign of Akhenaten in the Amarna period when many existing conventions were reversed and more freedom of expression was allowed.
