about the skin tone of egyptain tomb scenes

I think this todd person was trying to comment on the complexion of some of the tomb scenes appear to be light complexion. There is a explenation this is because many of the egyptains would opften paint themselves white,which was symbolic not their actual skin tone. Another myth I see is that the women painted themselves yellowih,which also is symnbolic since moertic tombs in nubia are also deplicted with yellowih skin.

Another thing you will notice even though kemetians or egyptaiuns paint themselves darker than nubians, they also paint themselves darker thgan syrian and libyans,which they deplict as lighter skinned with red hair.

YOu will notice also that nubians are painted in the same tone as egyptains at times,and lighter than opther nubians.

Another myth I would like flushe3d down the drain is saying just because thee egyptains might have had narrower noses and thinner lips than other populations in africa makes them somehow not black,since other black populations as somalians and nubians,and even fulani in western africa have these features but are still considered black.
