Statuette of Amun~Ca. 945-712 B.C., Egypt~gold~The god Amun ("the hidden one") first came into prominence at the beginning of the Middle Kingdom. From the New Kingdom onward, Amun was arguably the most important god in the Egyptian pantheon. As a creator god, Amun is most often identified as Amun-Re (in the typical Egyptian blending of deities, Amun is combined with the main solar deity, Re). His main sanctuary was the immense temple complex at Karnak. Ancient History, 22Nd Dynasty, Ancient Egypt, Karnak Egyptian, God Amun, Upper Egypt, Gold Statues, Metropolitan Museums, 945 712 Bc

How Glistening Egyptian Blue Pigment Was Forgotten then Lost
Color, Middle Age, Painting
Egyptian blue. o called "Egyptian blue" gives color to the night sky in paintings on the walls of Ancient Egyptians’ tombs. Its first use could be as early as 3200 B.C. making it possibly the first artificial pigment. The Romans and Greeks then borrowed the color, using it for example to paint the messenger goddess Iris in the Parthenon. But by the Middle Ages, the technique to make Egyptian blue was presumably lost, because it no longer appeared in paintings. Read more: http://www.smithsonian

Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep 2400 B.C. In the ancient Egyptian city of Saqqara, two royal court male "manicurists" are buried together in a joint tomb Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep are strongly speculated to be the first recorded same-sex couple in history. It is the only known tomb where two men are displayed holding hands and holding each other in the most conspicuous depiction of a nose-to-nose embrace. Is it the first recorded "gay" kiss? Some people think so!
Earliest recorded evidence of a same-sex couple. I had no idea that this existed, but they were the royal servants Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum (manicurists) that were found buried together as a married couple. From the year 2400 B.C.

In Egypt, two male royal manicurists named Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep were found buried together in a shared tomb similar to the way married couples were often buried. Their epigraph reads: 'Joined in life and joined in death'. Having lived in 2400 BC, they are believed to be history's oldest recorded gay couple. -
This is considered the 1st record of a same sex couple. In Egyptian society, at the time, this is the closest Two Men could pose together in Public, rubbing noses & touching, but no Kissing.
Same-sex love was documented in Ancient Egypt.
