This paper is a formal analysis of the Marble grave stele with a family group relief sculpture. It is a pentelic marble style relief standing at 171.1cm tall carved by a master. It is from the Late Classical period of Greek, Attic which was completed around ca.360 B.C. . I chose to analyze this piece as apposed to the others because I’m mainly attracted to art and sculptures from the Greek era. The overall color used in this relief is ivory with a few cracks and pieces broken off. There is some discoloration which causes the color to come off as slightly light brown for most of the relief. The sculpture appears larger compared to the other sculptures in the art room. It represents a family which includes a man, his wife, and their
This story gives a reflection on the role of the media because it demonstrates how news matter when a catastrophe occurs. Media is there to inform the public and increase their popularity but they are emotionally detached on what Azucena is going through. Allende makes media react in a particular way on how they should act with the people and be in guard on what to film, to please the public. The media only follows the company’s demands which is to bring more money for the company and that they shouldn’t take daily events emotionally. Though there’s Rolf Carle, who is different toward Azucena and distracts her from her hurt and loss of hope.
Carver is well known for his short stories and poetries. Among his works, “Cathedral” is considered one of the best, favorite, and most optimistic and the most developed. Carver’s story revolves around the theme of seeing and looking. Most people believed they could not live without cathedrals which brought them closer to their God. Similarly, people place so much importance to the physical eyesight and tend to think they can hardly live without it. Robert, a blind man, is invited to the narrator’s home and the narrator is shown troubled by Roberts’s disability. Later on, the narrator is amazed to see the blind smoking despite having even thought of helping him with his drink earlier on (Carver 516- 524). The latter brought to attention that as much as natural looking is essential, more essential is the ability to see or to visualize things. The writer explains that it might be tougher to be without eyesight; however, it is possible to live without it and make the best of what else one has, more so the brain. Visualizing brings out a better view of the significance of life and things surrounding us.
Ceramic making is still a popular tradition today in the Americas, especially on Native Indian Reservations, like in Western, North Carolina. The use of ceramics, however, is quite different than the way it was used by the natives during the Middle Woodland Period. Today, pottery is mainly made for decoration or art purposes by modern day Americans, but according to Wallis (2011), about 3,000 years ago the use of pottery became a very common use and practiced tradition among the native people who lived during that time period. The Swift Creek culture and the Cherokee Indians had very similar methods in formulating ceramics. The archaeological findings of these artifacts states that one group had been more advanced designs on their vessels. This reason is most likely because of the materials that one group was able to access in their area that the other group did not have available. One group was also more traditional and spiritual in making their vessels, which caused them to create more complex designs and methods while designing their ceramics (Block 2005). By looking at the similarities of both groups pottery styles, archaeologists were able to determine the minor but very distinctive differences, that one group processed in their art, than the other. By comparing each group’s ceramics by looking at
This jar have yei’ii design and is at 8 ¾ tall and 8” wide at the handle. This is one of the Faye Tso’s pottery that have won the Second Prize in 1993 during the Museum of Northern Arizona Navajo Artiests Exhibition. This pieces and with other large pieces of pottery like the vase with yei’iis and human figure and the water jar with horned toads. These clay sculpture were made by Myra Tso, Faye’s daughter and it was to honor her grandfather, who sang and prayed for her. The design of horned toads on the pottery are very special because the toads was use in a ritual for praying. All ritual and ceremonies are essential parts of the Navajo way as well as sand painting art that was inspired by those that created ceremony. The dust from gold, diamonds,
“The First Stone” is written by Don Aker and this book is based on two teenagers who have suffered very painful past. They both have lost one of their loved ones in their past.

Similarly to Aylmer in “The Birth-Mark,” the narrator does not ask these obvious questions, questions that might crack him open, but instead remarks, when interrupted while listening to a taped correspondence from the blind man, “I’d heard all I wanted to” (Carver 515). Unlike Aylmer, however, the narrator, after imbibing Scotch and smoking pot, does open up to the blind man after watching a documentary on television about cathedrals. The blind man asks him to describe a cathedral to him. When this task proves difficult, the blind man suggests they draw one together. As the drawing progresses, the blind man asks him to close his eyes and draw. “His fingers rode my fingers as my hand went over the paper. It was like nothing else in my life up to now.” The narrator experienced an epiphany. The tone changes from sarcasm to childlike awe. This ending combines an appeal to pathos and ethos; there is an emotional shift combined with credence gained
Andrew had quite a vivid memory and a fantastic imagination that led to a great fascination for art. His father recognized an obvious raw talent that had to be nurtured. While his father was teaching him the basics of traditional academic drawing Andrew began painting watercolor studies of the rocky coast and the sea in Port Clyde Maine.
He is alone with Robert not knowing what to say he turns on the television. Robert is listening to the television, a documentary on Cathedrals. The narrator helps Robert visualize a Cathedral by putting Robert’s hand on top of his hand while drawing. The narrator states, “He found my hand, the hand with the pen. He closed his hand over my hand” (Carver 37). The narrator is in the drawing by now, and Robert checks the paper with his fingers. Robert states, “I think that’s it. I think you got it. Take a look. What do you think” (Carver 37)? The narrator is encountering amazement. The blind man Robert tells the narrator to open his eyes, but he cannot; he says “My eyes were still closed. I was in my house. I knew that. But I didn’t feel like I was inside anything. It’s really something” (Carver 37). There is nothing more powerful than

After serving in World War II, Richard enrolled in the University of New Mexico where he painted the Albuquerque series, his master thesis. He was taking a flight above the clouds where he saw farm lands and farm roads. Albuquerque is an oil based paint on muslin that follows the idea of abstract thought. Richard is on of the greatest artist ofd the postwar era and many look up to him and his art abilities. I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the abstract thoughts paintings. However, they are absolutely stunning paintings. They can be seen in all modern places throughout the world. Abstract paintings are taking over the art world for their unique looks. For such an odd painting, art like this make you appreciate the thought behind
I had an opportunity to visit the oriental institute museum . During my visit to the museum I was made aware of its location and the importance of it to chicago. The museum housed many exhibits of historical value dating civilization back to the paleolithic period of 2,500,000-100,000 B.C. Below you'll find examples of mans rise through the use of tools and refined skills from cave living to structured living throughout evolution. This is an experience that has grounded me to a new interest in structures that we have devised to become the homes we use today for the rest of my life.
Irmgard Keun's 1931 novel, "Das Kunstseidene Mädchen", which has been translated into English as "The Artificial Silk Girl", is one of the most famous of Germany's `Neue Sachlichkeiten' works. This particular novel, in which the protagonist, Doris, a young working class German girl from Cologne, who dreams of the glitz and glamour and bright lights of the big city, Berlin - in her own words, she wants to be a "Glanz"<em>"Glamour Girl" - suffered subsequent censorship at the hands of Hitler's Nazi regime. This was due to the manner in which Doris is portrayed. Her behaviour and attitude towards men and her sexual relationships all greatly disturbed the National Socialist German society, which in
