An old Nubian house from history – Old Egypt
ALEXANDRIA, Egypt - 29 August 2017: Although drawn simply and unbounding by artistic rules, these drawings represent the real spirit of Nubia.
It is well known that Nubians love beauty and paint almost every piece found in their lives.
Living in bright colorful houses without specifically fine-edged drawing, the buildings reflect the free spirit and the childish purity of the Nubian people.
Thanks to Rania Hussein for contributing to the preservation of the Nubian culture with her drawings on the walls of Nubian houses in Luxor.

Just imagine what living there was like, between the rich date palms and the pure Nile River in its best form. And all the houses in the surrounding are just as colorful as butterflies in a field. Wherever you go, you will find people smiling to you and welcoming you with their kind hearts.
Although most of the original Nubian land is buried under Lake Nasser, the Nubian legacy is still present in several islands in Aswan. Make sure you head to the Nubian Islands next time you visit Aswan, and enjoy the breathtaking kindness of its people.
