From 1880s-1930s mechanization has increased in both Japan and India. More machines had started to be used than using one’s hands which produced more cotton than hand spinning would have.

As you travel and visit a tourist location such as Washington D.C. , you see monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial or the Washington Memorial. If you ever wonder the purpose of that monument could be or making and placing history as a view for everyone could see. A memorial can consider, though region, material, how large, and the significance of the stone can mean honor achievement for those who sacrificed the wars.
It is a natural tendency for people to assume that they are smarter than people that are younger than they are. It is widely thought that with age, comes more knowledge, and a better understanding of the world. However, this thinking can't be used as a broad statement for entire generations of people. While there certainly are older people that are much wiser than younger people, this fact doesn't mean that younger generations as a whole are dumb. With the knowledge and discoveries made by previous generations at the disposal of younger generation's, the young people of today are smarter than ever.
Take “The Maine Lobsterman” for example, H. Elroy Johnson was not a major historical figure—compared to those such as Christopher Columbus or Trajan—but he was dedicated a sculpture nonetheless (Source F). However, the difference between the Lobsterman and something akin to the statue of Christopher Columbus is the Lobsterman was forgotten for a period of time. Due to the fact this statue did not commemorate something more well known: “[n]o one seemed to want the man and his lobster,” causing it to be forgotten for decades (Source F). Though there is now a cast of the Lobsterman, it is more of a roadside attraction than a true monument, the statue is viewed as an amusing tale rather than an important
Is a good monument or memorial all about looks, or is it about the contextual meaning behind it. A monument’s size, location, materials and more are all considerations when planning and creating a memorial to the past. The audience of a monument/memorial site is not as important as it’s location and funding.
If pictures are worth one million words then a 3-d picture which is a monument is worth one million stories.

There are many monuments in the world and they are all built to honor someone or something that was done by that person. For example, after the Maine Lobsterman was built, the fake bronze statue returned to Maine and spent several decades being moved from city hall to museum to museum. No one seemed to want the man and his lobster. The issue at hand is if the monuments being built are memorializing the person or moment created accurately. Monuments capture legacy and preserve the individual's actions throughout history. Specifically, monuments should consider purpose, location, and size in their creation.
People do bad things in a group setting for numerous reasons falling under the category of social influencing. In many cases people tend to succumb to “deindividuation” in which they let go of their individual morals and mimic group behavior.
The size of a monument or museum is important to think about because you must ensure that the person or event you are memorializing receives the recognition it deserves. After it was decided that there needs to be a Holocaust museum on the Washington Mall, protesters stated that the proposed design was too large (Source E). “The purpose of the museum was to remember the Holocaust, not overpower the mall or its visitors” (Source E). By downsizing the design plan, curators were able to create a place of regard without overpowering the other memorials and museums. The materials used to construct a monument also play a role in ensuring a person or event receive the respect they/ it deserves. When designing the Vietnam Veterans memorial in Washington, D.C, Maya Lin decided to use “Black granite in order to make the surface reflective and peaceful” (Source G). Lin’s choice of black granite helped to create a somber feeling while still showing respect and remembrance to those who fought in the war. The size and material of a monument can have a huge impact on those paying their respects to a person or event and the way they recieve its

A public area, in a nice park or a place that is most significant to the person being immortalized, would be best.Thus, giving it a deeper meaning to the monument. The statue of Christopher Columbus stands in Riverside Park in Eaton. Pennsylvania.(Source B) When you see his monument in this beautiful
Accordingly, people raise monuments, create memorials, secure antiques, and fund museums to record and preserve the past events in a country. In accordance with the Merriam Webster dictionary, monuments are structures erected in commemoration of a distinguishable person or event. Nowhere in the definition it is stated that the matter in remembrance has to be praised or is considered a model for the society. As a matter of fact, they only portray people or events that should be remembered, no matter if they are regarded as admirable or detestable. Each and everyone of these objects should be maintained in public view to remind people of their past, especially those from the catastrophic Civil
The responsibility of designing and building a monument is no small feat. After all, the end product is meant to memorialize important, and sometimes tragic events and/or people that have significantly contributed something to society. How does one begin to plan a memorial in the first place? Certainly, it can not be rushed, and can be a very grueling process. Several things need to be considered, including determining the proper location of a monument that suits the people who see it. One must also consider the intended audience and what the monument represents. Of course the simplicity or complexity of the monument structure must also be determined. Along with that, monument builders need to consider the positive and/or negative affects on people viewing the monument. In short, there are three main things that need to be considered when debating how, or even if, to make a monument.
Monuments are used to memorialize and honor moments, individuals and events of the past. Some monuments do this better than other monuments. In creating a monument there are three essential factors a group or agency should consider to make the monument as effective as possible: location, design features, purpose and backstory. Why these factors? Location and design factors play a massive role in the reception the monument will receive, based on its environment, size and looks a monument will be perceived differently. The purpose and backstory are the two single most important factors to consider in creating a monument. The monuments history, its reason, is the reason just? Is the purpose proper? Does it accurately memorialize the subject? All these questions come with the purpose and backstory of a monument.
In many places throughout the world many buildings, monuments and sculptures have been made. Some were made centuries ago, and some were made recently. Many works of arts are significant or a great part of history. Some of the many buildings that have been made throughout time could have also been dedicated to someone or something. For example, the Arch of Titus was dedicated to Titus. Another example would be the Arc de Triomphe which was dedicated to soldiers. Many buildings can have a very significant meaning behind them, in the following essay I will be speaking about the importance of both of these works of art, which are the Arch of Titus and the Arc de Triomphe.
