Even though both civilizations were located near water (the very basis of life), each had a different outcome with agriculture.
Thirdly, ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian art was represented in diverse ways.
Differences between Ancient Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt It is not possible for civilizations to flow backwards while there is creativity and curiosity in the world.

The main task of the Egyptian artist was to capture for eternity, the real meaning and character of the deceased.
Egyptian art also focused on gods and human scenes, which were shown in characteristics, stylized in a certain form, such form that it lasted without change for many centuries.For real and mythological situations purposes many Mesopotamians used a cylinder seal as jewellery or as magical amulets, which were connected to cuneiform writing.This is significant, because it demonstrates that mostly Mesopotamia’s art was used for praying to gods and since they did not have much stone this made them different from Egyptians who had much more stone to use for practical purposes.Egyptian art meant to capture eternity for an individual represented.Since Egyptians wanted to live forever, their art it made it possible.Mesopotamian art was small in scale to Egyptian art; it also had two preoccupations-man’s relationship to the gods and conflict on real/ mythological situations.The first piece of art was the Ziggurats, which shows that Mesopotamians believed in humans serving the gods.All year-round life for farmers was challenging and demanding.(Newman 40) (Louis)This is important, because this also shows how hard it was for ancient Mesopotamia to farm under harsh conditions and for them to be able to grow as a civilization, food was needed and if food was not available then it would be hard for the civilization to expand.The ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt are different.Mesopotamia and Egypt both had a very centralized government, but they both used different methods to see who would become the ruler.
