The Tlatilco female figurine (1200-900 B.C.E.) is a ceramic sculpture created in Central Mexico at the site of Tlatilco. The 9.5 cm tall sculpture depicts a woman with two faces exhibiting an intricate hairstyle, a slim waist, and large thighs. The sculptor of the Tlatilco female figurine is unknown, but one can conclude that the artist was from the people of the Tlatilco culture. The people of the Tlatilco culture lived in the Valley of Mexico, where they created many small clay figures, but sculpted them by hand rather than using a mold. The figurine is currently residing at the Princeton University Art Museum. In Tlatilco female figurine, the artist uses visual elements and principles to draw attention to the face and the hairstyle.
There are many mythical creatures in Greek mythology. Cerberus was chosen by Hades from all the monsters that existed. Cerberus is the most important existence in the underworld. If there was no Cerberus, there would be complete chaos. There would be living in the land of the dead. He is the link from the mortal world to the underworld. None thought that Cerberus could be defeated, although Hercules wrestled that myth to the ground with the twelfth labour that Hera assigned.
Looking closely at the painting, the composition contains a tree that bisects the image in half vertically, with the tree appearing to extend beyond the top and bottom of the painting. A deer skull hangs from the front of the tree, with large antlers that curve to the sides and forward, placing these objects in the foreground of the pictorial plane. Almost all of the background is blue sky, with a mountain range and mesa placed horizontally in the lowest eighth of the picture, pushing the mountains into the distance. The middle-ground is a horizontal band of green and tan, at the very bottom of the image. The extremely low placement of background and middle-ground creates a sense of great spatial distance. The painting has an asymmetrical balance, with skull and branches at the top countered by the mountains at the bottom. Although bisected vertically by the tree, features vary slightly on right and left.
“The Creation is disappearing so quickly.” These are words spoken by Edward O. Wilson in an interview on NPR’s Talk of the Nation radio show, and they are very much true. Current human activities are removing ecosystems and extinguishing species, if we continue to the end of the century, projections show that we could have lost or be right on the edge of losing about half the known species of plants and animals by then. Yet with these facts present, why is no one taking action? The world is dying and it is for the most part all due to human action. We spend top dollar for views of the ocean and overlooking green park space in our crowded cities, but we still distance ourselves from nature as a whole. Luckily, there are those in the world that
Abstract: This paper is a report on the findings of the geometry in Native American art. Many Native American tribes have mastered the art of weaving baskets, blankets, and pottery. All in which their inspiration is taken from geometric shapes and symmetries. One very important element in the creation of the geometric patterns in their art, are the numbers four and three. Many tribes consider the number four as showing completeness, thus translating it into their art. Changing times also demand change in designs and learning new forms of art.
Overall, the unity of the painting comes primarily from the visual elements. On the sliding scale from blandness to chaos, this piece falls in the center of the spectrum. The quadrilaterals and the swath of green keep the painting interesting, and the soothing colors and horizontal lines make sure it doesn’t become too chaotic. The quadrilaterals, horizontal and vertical lines, and the analogous color scheme are the primary visual elements that come together to give this piece a feeling of visual

Cobras with their threatening hoods and intimidating upright postures, are some of the most iconic snakes on the planet Earth. Even though some Cobras search for new meat, Mongooses are fit to stop them from doing so. Mongooses are carnivorous mammals that are known for its ability to kill Cobras and other venomous snakes. In the book, “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”, that is just the case. By examining “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” the setting, characters, and conflict it is clear that the book and movie are very similar to one another.
Thomas Kinkade is a painter who infuses light into his paintings creating incredibly romantic and tranquil scenes.

Alice Dinneen was born in New York,New York in 1908. I chose this painting because black panthers are endangered. Also the exotic colors caught my eye. This painting was done with oil on canvas. The colors were meant to catch your attention. The flowers are very dull though. Alice Dineen could have put a lot more bright colors in this painting.The black panther is blended in with the ground. In this painting there is mostly natural colors as in brown,green,yellow and orange. These are colors you mainly see in nature. There is very little amount of bright colors as in red, white, and a little bit of silver.The artist made it look like this is a real animal by putting the shadow of the black panther.

Some people choose tattoos simply because they see the designs and fall in love with it. Others search for symbols and images that have a deeper meaning. The ouroboros tattoo is one of those designs that not only looks remarkable but is also packed with ancient significance. And those who choose it will definitely be aware of what it symbolizes.
On the 12th of September, I went to the De Young Museum where they had a showcase of a wide range of art pieces, such as paintings, sculptures, and ancient artifacts ranging from many the different time periods and cultures from around the world. However, the one particular artwork that caught my eye would have to be the 12x18” painting called the Migration. It was a painting about the movement of nearly two million African Americans out of the rural South to the cities of the North, Midwest, and West by an artist named Jacob Lawrence in the year 1947, which is located on the first floor of the museum.
The first work of art that I am going to analyze, titled Smokey, is an example of 3D art. The artist, Luke Sides, used the additive casting technique of sculpting to created his cast iron bust. It is on display in The Arts Gallery at Collin College. This year 's exhibition, titled The Arts Faculty, was visited on September 5th. This sculpture is representational, and it 's form is portrayed on a large scale that is out of proportion when compared to the presumed size of what it represents. It is three times the size of an average man 's head, giving the impression that the subject is a larger than life character.
