Greek Statues

Most Greek sculpture in museums and galleries have been cleaned, the paint deliberately removed or worn away over time and therefore no longer appear as they did during the time period when they were created. Artists have attempted to re-create the original appearance in virtual reconstructions of Greek sculpture to give 21st centuries viewers an idea of what the ancient viewer would have seen. After viewing their recreations on the sites below, address the following questions.What issues arise when viewers realize they have been viewing ancient works in a manner that was not intended by the artist? (colorless rather than painted)?What do you think of the re-imaging process, what are the results and is your answer affected by a preconceived idea of what Greek sculpture should look like?

Artistic Representations

For this assignment you are going to look at the art and architecture created by the people we are studying this semester. Art is not just fun to look at, it tells us something significant about the people that created it. This is a chance for you to look at the objects people created in the past and to use those objects to discover more about history. Assignment Instructions: This assignment will require you to use your knowledge of the different civilizations we have discussed and apply them to understanding the art created in the places and times covered by this class. Choose one of the following pieces of art or architecture: The Cave Paintings at Lascoux , KV62, the Tomb of King Tutankamun, Doryphoros , Emperor Qin’s Terracotta Army Sutton Hoo Burial Site Augustus of Prima Porta Temple Statuary from Mesopotamia, The Book of Kells The Blue Mosque The Virgin of the Rocks Tokugawa Popular Art Aztec Stone Sculpture Artifacts from the Mississippian Mound culture Rock Hewn Churches of LalibelaYou will write a two to three page paper on the art or architecture you chose. Your paper should answer the following:-What civilization does this art represent?-What is the title of the piece?-Who is the artist (if possible)?-Why did you choose this piece?-How was the piece created? What is the medium?-Why was the piece created?-What does this work tell you about the civilization that created it? Purpose of the Assignment: This assignment is designed to give you an interdisciplinary approach to understanding history. People produced much more than written documents throughout history. Humans have long created art, even before they developed into civilizations. Artistic representations reflect the beliefs, customs, norms, mores, and social structures of people, though sometimes it takes time to understand what is being conveyed by a piece of art. By looking closely, we get a visual representation of the people and societies that existed in the past. By studying the visual remnants of the past, it also gives students the opportunity to tap into different learning styles and concepts. What to Include in Your SubmissionCoversheet and bibliography. Three academic sources not including the textbook and provided website. Citations for all facts and information from your research, not just the direct quotes.File name saved as LastNameFirstNameClassNumberAssignmentName.
