Sailboat of the Ancient Egyptians, guided by a single oar, and constructed of bundled papyrus.
The Egyptian Papyrus is made by slicing thin strips of River Nile reeds and laying them criss-cross.
They are then soaked in water and dried under weight. The result makes a very durable paper, which has been used since ancient times.
The papyrus painting measures aproximately 9" X 12."
It is painted in Gouache watercolor.
