As far as art is concerned, we find that the Egyptians were more involved in creating great monumental and gaudy structures, while the Greeks were more involved in creating smaller, more literary pieces of art.
One of the biggest reasons why these two civilizations had these differences is due to their geography.
They used mathematics to build the dwellings in very symmetrical designs.
It has been noted that the numbers pi and phi have been greatly incorporated in the building and design of Ancient Egyptian architecture (Greenberg).
The Egyptians had the Nile to their advantage and their production was mostly agricultural.
The Greeks had a much harsher climate and their focus was instead on the development of commercial law and merchant class.The Greeks lacked such beliefs and this is why their social structure was very different from the Egyptians.Both the civilizations are known to have been extensive traders, however, there were certain differences in the way that they traded due to their geographical location.This can also be attributed to the Egyptians have a very strong bureaucracy and a strictly centralized government system.These differences can also be attributed to the difference in religious beliefs of the two civilizations, as the Egyptians had a very strong believe in the after-life and they built all their large pyramids and structures in order to help their dead find a better life after death.The Ancient Egyptians believed that there was more to life than just the life on earth.Much of their architecture, including the pyramids and the houses they built were based on strict rules of mathematics and geography.This is why the Greeks had to develop much more complex trade routes than the Egyptians did.Many scholars as being more stable than the Greeks also describe the overall political structure of Egypt.These design techniques show that the Ancient Egyptians built their dwellings very symmetrically.It has also been noted by research that symmetrical dwellings tend to create harmony in its structure.
