Metropolitan Museum Of Art - 1,295 words
During my trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I observed many interesting paintings, sculptures, and artifacts. The two exhibits I chose to do my report on were Anonymous Official, from the thirteenth dynasty in Egypt, (1783 B.C.), and Head from a Herm from the early Greek civilization, (first quarter of the fifth century). (The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide, Howard, pg. 306) I chose these two particular exhibits because of their faces. The way the human face is portrayed is an excellent way to figure out how humans were perceived in these specific time periods. You can compare the two different faces from the two different time periods, and compare and contrast the two time periods. ...

David Awaiting Goliath - 490 words
Before going to Eleganza, the only sculpture that I had ever seen, besides the small statues in neighbors' yards, was in books that I had looked at. When I entered the museum I noticed the many sculptures that occupied the small space. After walking around, observing the different sculptures and listening to Dr. Roselle speak, I came to a decision that David was my favorite statue in the museum. The complexity, texture, and realistic characteristics of Michelangelo's David made this a beautiful sculpture. I had only been exposed to pictures in books of sculpture before visiting Eleganza. For me to be able to see the sculptures in their three-dimensional form right in front of me was an exper ...

Greek Art - 982 words
Ancient Greece 950 BCE was a culture that took great pride in perfection, excellence and overall greatness. The people werent what todays society would consider modern, but of their time they were. The Greeks essentially molded the creative world with their intelligence in art, architecture, and astronomy for many cultures to come. The Romans who basically claimed the Greeks developments as their own destroyed many of their ideas and art forms.

Greek Grave - 1,750 words
The portals to immortality-Greek Grave Steles To us who live in modern times the 'melancholic look' that we find in the sculpture of cemeteries throughout the world is something we take for granted. Although its authenticity has been lost to us, this so-called look can be traced back to 5th century Greek funerary sculpture. For us it is only natural to associate such a look with death. However, as the above verse elaborates, the Greeks viewed death somewhat differently from the way we do. To them death freed their souls and brought true happiness: then why does their grave sculpture look so pensive and thoughtful? It is because unlike today where the dead are only represented figuratively in ...

Fat People - 789 words
Some of the world's top scientists have got together to try to reduce the growing number of people who are dangerously fat.

The Male Sexual Anatomy - 1,161 words
In Greek art, the male human nude was used as a canon of human perfection. The sensuous male form in motion was considered the crowning achievement of Greek sculpture.

The classical Greek period of art is between 480 323 B.C. This era is believed to be the most influential time in the history of western art.

Statuette Of A Youth - 1,115 words
Ancient Greek art set the bar for artists around the world for thousands of years and still does today. Its sophistication peaked during the Classical Period which has been called the Golden Age of Greek art. The idea of being able to make the world and people around oneself seem flawless was captured through their art. From the usage of geometric shapes to the idea of symmetry helped to give way to the idea of equilibrium, a balance, to which the Greeks held as one idea of perfection. Many sculptures in Greek art took qualities of a person and made them bigger, stronger, and more beautiful. They took nature broke it down and rebuilt it to make it perfect in the eye of the artist. Apollo, th ...
