Wedding Day - 593 words
Racism has been an issue addressed for thousands of years and it continues to be prevalent today. Unfortunately, in many cases, racism affects the way people live on a day-to-day basis.

Snapshots Of A Wedding - 449 words
Bessie Heads Snapshots of a Wedding is a perfect example of excessive uses of imagery, which projects ideas and concepts in my mind. The main underlying concepts and comparisons are that of tradition and modernity. Bessie Head projects multiple perspectives on the issues of tribal tradition and modernity. The overall tone, however, places small, yet growing, amounts of modernity in a traditional world. The set is Neo placed in the tribe and world of Kegoletile. Neo, Kegoletiles future wife, is certainly not traditional. And as well, she is educated.

An Unusual Wedding Ceremony - 767 words
Ever been to an unusual wedding ceremony? Perhaps not, because very rarely have we been invited to a wedding ceremony that is other than a formal and a well-mannered event. Our familiarization with the wedding ceremony, however, is in sharp contrast with the traditional marriage ceremony of the Momna community, a minority group in eastern Pakistan from where I come. In this community, the marriage ceremony lasts for two days, with rituals that are not only unique, but extremely amusing, interesting, and sometimes not very serious. The first part of the ceremony, called pithi, is perhaps the most humorous of all. The bridegroom is lead by his mother from his room to a chair in the living room ...

Amish Culture - 1,941 words
The past five weeks in my life have really had an impact on me. In such a short period of time, I have become more aware of the different cultures that exist around the world today. We tend to think that our way of life is the only way there is, or at least the only right way. It is really very ignorant to think that everyone believes and behaves the same way. People should stop being so self-centered and take notice and interest in cultural diversity. There are numerous different cultures in our country alone. One in particular is the Amish culture, which I would like to familiarize you with. The Amish culture consists of many unique beliefs that makes their ways unlike that of any other cu ...

Arnolfini - 1,407 words
An essay written by a renowned art historian, Erwin Panofsky, discusses the controversy over a famous painting. The disputation was over the identification of the two people portrayed in the painting. The painting was a portrait thought to be Giovanni Arnofili and his wife, and the artist was Jan van Eyck. Panofsky wrote this essay to prove that this painting found in 1815, which he refers to as the London portrait, is identical to a picture which was once acquired by Queen Mary of Hungary, among others. The Hapsburg painting, referring to the one owned by the Queen, was lost in 1789. In my essay, I will show the proof given by Panofsky that the two By tracing the provenance of the paintings ...
