exodus: odd and wrong things - childrens costume jewellery
Experienced director Ridley Scott soon found himself in a deep camel fight after announcing his latest sword and sandals epic Exodus: God and King
Tells the story of the Bible Moses that Cecil B brought to the film life twice. DeMille.
It was almost a moment of laughter to greet Scott in large part as an English casting, with former Batman and British Christian Bell playing the unexpected Israeli Moses and Australian Joel ·
Now that Australians have time to look at Scott's epic, we do a little archaeological digging to find out if the unreliable combination of accents is the only historical swing in Exodus: God and King.
Professor Colin Hope, director of the Center for Ancient culture at Monash University in Melbourne, said it may not be surprising that they are the least against accurate cultural performance in the film.
"If I were to speak out, I would say they did a very bad job," he said . ".
"They always exaggerate certain features.
"Let's take a look at some of the biggest mistakes: Ramses II lived to an unusually mature old age and ruled Egypt for 67 years, so the leaders who followed his footsteps in sandbar left a lasting mark.
He also left a great deal of archaeological evidence in the form of documents, reliefs, palaces and tombs, so we had a fair amount of knowledge about him.
Although Hope says it's hard to determine what Ramses will wear in a day --to-
During the day, it is unlikely that he will show a great deal of gorgeous jewelry in Scott's epic.
"These may only be worn on national occasions," he said . ".
It is hoped that the followers of Ram will have such an opportunity to approach their king.
"He is unlikely to wander around like one of the guys.
He will be separated and will show great respect, just as they treat any complete tyrant.
"You have to remember that he has full control over all aspects of government and bureaucracy and is considered a half
Who is God-powerful.
People don't say, 'Hey, you didn't notice what I said just now.
"Speaking of those followers,
The hangers at Rames are also a bit suspicious.
On the one hand, I hope to point out that his on-
There is no doubt that the high priestess is male.
"The clothing was also canceled," he added . ".
"Egyptians usually wear only white linen.
This is a very hot environment, up to 40 degrees in summer and maybe up to 25 degrees in winter.
"While these women will show some embroidery, the OTT costume at Ramses court goes far beyond the standard.
"You are always able to distinguish between the royal family by the quality of their costume jewelry, but the King and Queen are the only ones who may wear headwear.
So these people wearing elaborate helmets and crowns are not correct.
The biggest one (Literally)
The historical inaccuracies shown in Exodus: God and King are the proliferation of pyramids that have been stopped by the Ramses era.
"Of course, everyone connects the pyramids with Egypt, but when Ramses is still alive, they will not build the pyramids anymore.
"It's not all, we 've got used to all these magnificent stone palaces filled with huge statues, but the reality is that Ramses's more modest residence is built with mud bricks
"He was built with stones and was very large, but it was for the temple, not the palace.
"If you find yourself questioning the authenticity of Ramses going to war, as shown in the opening scene of Exodus: God and King, please settle down.
This is true.
"We know that Ramses led the army and went into battle in the first 20 years of his rule," said Hope . ".
This is not to say that the date is a bit uncertain, especially the initial skirmish, seeing Ramses surrounded by his enemies and saved by Moses.
"The battle took place in the fifth year of Ramses II rein, not his father's fifth, as they have hinted here," Hope corrected . ".
"The Egyptians are actually losing the day in a short period of time, so it's fair.
What about those powerful chariots? They used two.
"The chariots drawn by the two horses also look good, but they are fragile and can only be driven on flat terrain," Hope said . ". So no mountain-
Then by pursuing the "impossible and completely absurd" of the Israelis.
"The Egyptians are a mixture of shemites and Hamitic, with dark brown skin, hair and eyes.
Christian Bell and Joel Edgerton are not true.
As the mother of Ramses, Signey Weaver did not.
"It should be noted that, in fact, there is no archaeological evidence to suggest that Egypt is clearly slaves to the Israelis, or that Moses is subsequently free with his newly discovered people, more than the Bible recorded nearly After 700.
Hope points out that there is a questionable digital game playing here.
"The film says 400,000 Israelis left, but at the time, there could be only about 2 million people in Egypt, so it would be ridiculous that it would be almost a population.
The numbers have been enlarged.
