"Man, know yourself... and you shall know the gods."

The inspiration from this set comes from the great pyramids of Giza and the ancient Egyptian Civilization. We decided to use two simple yet meaningful colors for the people of ancient Egypt.                                                                       

Black (Ancient Egyptian name "kem") : It the color of the fertile silt left by the Nile during its annual flooding giving rise to the Ancient Egyptian name for the country - "kemet" (black land). Black symbolizes fertility, new life/beginnings and resurrection.
The gods were typically represented with gold skin with an exception of Osiris who is depicted with black skin symbolizing fertility, regeneration, and the underworld where the sun was said to regenerate every night.                                             
It was made from carbon, ground charcoal, mixed with water and sometimes burnt animal bones.                                                                                                                                                                         

Yellow/Gold (Ancient Egyptian name "khenet" and "kenit"/"nebu" or "nebw") : It repesented the color of women's skin, as well as the skin of people who lived near the Mediterranean. Gold also represented the skin of the gods and the sun itself.                 
Hence it was used for anything which was considered eternal or indestructible and perfect. The ancient Egyptians made numerous statues of the gods that were either made of gold or covered with gold leaf.                                                           
They also made yellow pigments such as yellow ochre (an ore of iron) and massicot (an oxide of lead).                                                                                                                                                                 

Sublegends : Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

We used the reference from the Australian Museum. Link : https://media.australian.museum/media/dd/Uploads/Documents/7770/Egyptian%20Heiroglyphs.340c0ac.pdf

Disclaimer : The colors you see here and in the renders are a very close representation of the actual physical colors (GMK stock color ring and RAL D2 design plus book). Please be aware that physical colors cannot be replicated in web space. The colors also vary from screen to screen. I would color match to the best of my abilities.
