In the necklace the girl wanted to go to a dance but she had know dress or jewelry to addentend the dance. “She had no proper wardrobe, no jewels,nothing. And those were the only things that she loved-she felt she was made for them.” She felt like she was nothing without the jewels even no that is not something she needed but wanted. She felt as if she would have gotten made fun of for being poor or lower class. As shown in the quote… “No… there is nothing more humiliating than to look poverty-stricken among a lot of rich women.”
While the true meaning of the lion is never specified one can use the experiences and events that the narrator describes and reasonably believe that the lion is a representation and symbol of growing up and the process of puberty. As the story progresses the narrator describes different events of his childhood when the process of growing up is evident. Such as the time when the narrator and his friend discovered a perfectly round stone ball, which they later would learn is a grinding ball. However, for the time being they saw this ball as near perfection and were in awe of the sheer flawlessness of this stone ball. This event shows the childish innocence that they had in the belief that the ball was naturally perfect. The problem they faced was the fact that they felt that they could not tell anyone about their discovery because it too might be taken away. So they hide the ball down by the river. It was their little secret, a secret that fascinated them but also confused them at the same time. A secret that they did not understand but could not get away from. It was much like their secret lion. Although the time of which they learned of its true meaning is not specified this fact that they did learn of its true purpose is evidence that supports their childish innocence could not last much against the current of the ever changing
In “The Necklace”, Mathilde Loisel is a woman who cannot tolerate her lower-class status, believing “herself born for every delicacy and luxury”(82). Mathilde’s vain materialistic goals, make her bitter and unhappy. The main point of irony in the story is the fact that Mathilde borrows the necklace and looses it. The necklace was very expensive, or so she thought, so she ended up in poverty
The necklace serves as a symbol for greed. When Mathilda Loisel loses the necklace that she believed was worth forty thousand francs, she desperately retraces her steps and gets her husband to help her find it as well. It ends up taking ten years to pay off the debt. The ten years were hard on Mathilda Loisel and her husband, and Maupassant told the reader that she “looked old now… with hair half combed, with skirts award, and reddened hands” (6). However, even after the long ten years of manual labor all because she lost the necklace, she “sat down near the window and though of that evening at the ball so long ago, when she has been so beautiful and so admired” (6). The necklace symbolizes that when greed controls emotions and decisions, it never leads to good results.
The Great Sphinx is a cultural artifact and a giant lion that was man-made from natural rock and it was designed in ancient times by Ancient Egyptians. It is a symbol that has represented the essence of Egypt for thousands of years and it is truly a mysterious marvel from the days of Ancient Egypt (The Great Sphinx of Giza, Guardian’s Sphinx). It has the body of a lion and a head of a god or king which symbolizes the wisdom and strength that the sphinx has (The Great Sphinx of Giza, Guardian’s Sphinx). This is an important structure that we will need to learn about because it represents the pharaohs and the kings, queens and the gods in Ancient Egypt. When we visit this, it is going to be spectacular to look at the real thing instead of just
In The Necklace, the setting of Paris in the late 19th century is a world of elegance and wealth. If not born into a wealthy family, one would have two options: marry into a wealthy family, or stay in their social class. That is just the case for Mathilde Loisel, who is endowed with beauty but born into a family of clerks. She was born free and could have had a plentiful life because of her beauty. However, she was held back by the chains of her social status and forced to marry her wealthy husband Monsieur Loisel. Together they have an awkward relationship consisting only of their need for marriage.
What has a body of a lion and a face of a man? Well, the answer is… THE GREAT SPHINX!!! It is a pyramid in Egypt that holds a pharaoh’s (a ruler’s) body in it. Scientists believe that it is older than Jesus but no one really knows when it was built.
Ever since the late 1990s Cari Casper-Bassler, Rob Thornberry, and Dan Krause have been a positive and productive teachers in the Belleville West Art Department. Each sharing load of teaching Photography, Ceramics, Intro To Graphic Arts, Graphic Design, and Painting. Those who are apart of the art community know very well what each teacher teaches, However a sudden change this year is shaking things up and leaving many students confused.
The art of painting dates back to pre-historic times, the finger used as a paintbrush on the canvas of cave walls. When it comes to painting, artists have many mediums to choose from: acrylics, oils, gouache, fresco, and watercolors. Watercolors is one of the toughest mediums to achieve, its transparent streaks almost impossible to cover up and its various techniques prestigous and precise, but satisfying when accomplished. The incentive a watercolor artist has to get a taste of perfecting their talents is impecable; therefore, striving for perfection can only be accomplished with the understanding of the watercolor history, the use of the tools of the trade, the practice of techniques, and observation of former artists’ approaches.
The falcon figure was highly worshipped, and the animal was called the lord of the two lands, Upper and Lower Egypt. Like the lamassu, Horus wears a hat which symbolizes those two regions of Egypt. The cobra emblem on the hat represents royalty because it is also associated with the pharaoh. The lamassu creature is not a god but wears a hat and belt which are symbols of divinity. It makes the statue god-like in nature but does not represent a god in way the falcon does. The head of the statue was made to be a human’s representing humans’ intelligence. These works show that the artists were interested in animal anatomy. Although its body is made up of the parts of animals, the human-headed winged lion is far from being a natural creature. The statue of Horus is a much better example of the natural animal world because of the fine skill put into carving its anatomy.
The paintings on the base and shoulder are broken up into registers which can trace back to Mesopotamian culture and Egyptian society as well. Both registers on the shoulder and body depict two dimensional figures along side with oriental flowers. In both registers, there is an animal depicted, which is a panther. The panther is one of the forms that Dionysus the god of wine, agriculture, and fertility of nature takes on.3 The panther on this Oinochoe leads us to believe it represents Dionysus because he is the god of wine, and this particular vessel was used for wine. Another figure on the vase is a winged figure, however that part of the vase has faded to the point where it cannot be analyzed or examined. What can be seen however are lions, which at the time in ancient Greece showed wealth and power and can often be found in many Greek myths. Lions during this time are depicted roaring with their mouths open and their body flexing and tall, poised to show power and authority. The registers may have the same animals and creatures on them; however the register on the body of the vase has more of the animals. The final animal that is depicted is a feral goat, the only way it can described and identified as feral, is because it is grazing where the lions and bird like
Sarah Painter I think your question is how can we reach everyone because the government can't/won't/doesn't, I believe that the perfect systems involves the citizen care more for their neighbor and their friend then having the latest iphone. I think if all of us willingly gave back to the community then we can reach each one. I'm reminded of a poem/story where a a guy is tossing sand dollars back in the ocean to give them another chance at life. And a guy asks you can't reach them all before hey die and he said I can make a difference in that one's life as he tosses another back in the ocean. We can make a difference with focusing on the one we can help.
In The Necklace the woman lost her friend’s “expensive” necklace. The loss of this necklace caused her and her husband to live in major debt when they decided to buy her another one just like it to replace it. They worked many jobs for ten years and she lost her beauty and health. When she saw her friend again she was told the necklace
During this time period, women’s role in society was that of a submissive, powerless position. They often relied solely on their husband for direction, allowing the husband to make decisions and take lead no matter what. In the story of The Necklace, Maupassant illustrates these
Within these categories of jewelry there was a variety of different types. An example of different types is earrings. During the second Intermediate Period of Ancient Egypt earrings were simple hoops but by the New Kingdom, earrings were worn in many different ways such as hoops, “dangles, tube and boss earrings and ear studs” . Evidence also shows that mummies had stretched earlobes, meaning they would insert ear plugs in their lobe that were a maximum “two inches wide” . Another type of jewelry that existed was worn in the hair or wigs of woman. They were called rosettes or tubes of gold that were strung in the women's hair. Towards the New Kingdom tubes made of cornelian began to be worn . The most important feature of egyptian jewelry is that it was colorful. Egyptians wore white linen clothing, especially the wealthy, therefore; to accent their white clothing, their jewels were full of colors such as red (red jasper, cornelian), green (green jasper, chrysoprase), purple (amethyst) and blue (lapis lazuli, turquoise) stones. They loved their accessories to look heavy because it showed more wealth. In order to make it look heavy they added metals around their stones. Gold was the metal of choice
