A cartouche is the way an ancient Egyptian’s name would have been recorded.

The cartouche was stone, a rectangle shape, with rounded corners,
and a design at one end almost like a handle.

Hieroglyphs [Ancient Egyptian Letters] sounding out the name, were carved into the cartouche, along with a symbol which showed if the person was male or female. They could be carved left to right, right to left or top to bottom.

For our cartouches: - we mixed and kneaded dough,
                                        - fashioned it into the correct shape
  - carved the hieroglyphs
  - painted the finished product
