Within your own workplace, would you like to see it painted Red, Blue, Yellow, or Green? You could probably guess which color you would prefer; however, you might approach it scientifically if you knew what colors would make you feel warm and welcomed or cold and confined. The ancient Egyptians believed in the significance of color symbolism. The colors Gold and Yellow were associated with the sun; therefore, it was always used in crowns and ornaments for the pharaoh and his priests. Green stones were placed in the mouths of pharaohs to restore their speech in the other world.
