Portraits have been around virtually since cave painting, the oldest “cave portrait” dating back to 26, 000 years ago. In the Ancient World, portraits became immensely popular in several cultures, each having their own style and creed behind creating them. The Egyptians, for example, created a huge amount of portraits, depicting their rulers and gods.
