Art from the natural world were made back in the day by indigenous people. Indigenous people or our ancestors used natural materials in order to create works of art. These artworks are pieces of artifacts that allow art historians to understand how our ancestors perceived art. In this essay we will be talking about the Painted Elk Hide and the Black-on-black ceramic vessels. By talking about these two works of art we will be able to have a further understanding of the natural world.
The movie “Bajo la Misma Luna,” in my own opinion, is a wonderful film representing all of the obstacles and sacrifices families have to go through to live in a free and safe environment. Some of the obstacles that these Mexican families encounter would include the hardships illegal immigrants face with la migra along with the reasons for Mexicans to immigrate and cross the border. Also jobs available for illegal immigrants are difficult to find as well. All of these things can be very dangerous especially being an illegal immigrant but it could take years to completely become an American citizen so the quickest way is to go illegally which splits families like Carlitos and his
Lieutenant Nun: Memoir of a Basque Transvestite in the New World is a memoir by Catalina de Erauso detailing her experiences during the early 1600’s in South America and Spain. She was born in 1585 into a well off Basque family and her parents were native-born residents of San Sebastian Spain. This book is one of the earliest known autobiographies by a woman and details the events that took places when Catalina escaped a Basque convent dressed as a man. During this time she served as soldier in the Spanish army, traveling to Peru and Chile, and even becoming a gambler. Being that my major falls under sociology, I will be looking at themes surrounding the constraints of females in Spanish society in the 1600’s and how this affects Catalina.
From how the people act, to the sculptures or the traditions they have. Art was and still is large part of the African culture. The African people used the lost-wax process, this is method of making a bronze sculpture. The process is explained in Document 7, “This account will show how the figures are made. This work is one to cause wonder.
In life, people find different ways to cope with their issues. This is the case in “Vaclav and Lena” by Hayley Tanner, where the main characters Vaclav and Lena face many obstacles, but use their imaginations to help them deal with the struggles they face in reality. This relates to the quote “Imagination is the one weapon in the in the war against reality” by Jules de Gautier, because Vaclav and Lena use their imaginations and dreams of better things to come, to ignore the problems they currently face. Vaclav and Lena use their imaginations and dreams of the future to forget about their issues momentarily, and to be able to postpone dealing with them.
Juan de Solorzano y Pereyra says that the Indians practiced savage customs or they attempted to commit treason against the Spanish people. Bartolome de Las Casas says that the Indians were gentle sheep and the Spaniards rushed in like a bunch of starving wolves, tigers and lions ready to devour. The Spaniards slew the Indians as if their lives did not matter what so ever. All of this happened throughout Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Mexico (Hispaniola). Juan Gines de Sepulveda Sepulveda said that the Indians are a savage and cruel race and that the Spanish are a superior race that is why the Indians should be treated as if they are inferior.
In the essay “How to Tame a Wild Tongue”, Gloria Anazaldúa demonstrates the diversity of the Spanish language. The language is broken into sections, and I agree that when speaking to other Hispanics from different countries it may seem like a completely different language. Being fluent in Spanish, I’ve noticed how this process works. Different accents and words influence the diversity, sometimes making it difficult for two fluent Hispanics to communicate. Countries, such as Argentina, have an accent and a language that differs tremendously from other forms of Spanish.
Yo Le Canto Todo el Dia is a Venezuelan-influenced song that revolves around its unique rhythms and playful melodies. The song is an original setting of a text honoring the South American Patron Saint of Drumming. David L. Brunner is the Director of Choral Activities at the University of Central Florida, and is an exceptional conductor, clinician, composer, pianist, and teacher whose research has appeared in the Music Educators Journal and the Choral Journal. Much of the piece 's energy is provided in the rhythmically challenging piano accompaniment.
Martillo y Tumbao The martillo (“mar-tee-yo”; English: “hammer”) is a rhythm played by the bongos in Afro-Cuban music. As the name suggests, this style of music has roots from Africa, Cuba, and also Spain. Bongos consist of two small drums of different sizes. The martillo rhythm first appears in Line 1, measure 1.
Three months ago, when I first identified myself as a critical thinker, it was one of the first times I have consciously considered my privileges and oppressions as they pertained to my identity as an able bodied, straight, middle class, light skinned, cisgendered, Mexican American woman. I briefly mentioned that although I am often mistaken as all white, I am actually also Mexican, and it was not until college that I became more interested to learn about this disclosed side of my family and their culture. My dad was also my mom’s step¬¬¬brother, and although he passed away over three years ago, his side of the family is still very much connected with my mom’s side because my grandma, and his father, remain married to this day. Because of this,
The important people, in this case, was the victim, Elias Santana, a member of the Neta gang. Wilfredo Benitez is a member of Los Solidos gang and claimed to have witnessed the murder. Benitez also mentioned that they saw Will and Hueso beating up the victim and saw Will giving Hueso the gun and Hueso shoots the victim in the chest. Angel Carrasquillo (Hueso) is a member of Los Solidos gang and robbed and fought with the victim every time he saw him. Carrasquillo is also known for being armed and capable of the murder.
In Breaking Through, by Francisco Jiménez, the protagonist, Francisco Jiménez, begins as a nervous and scared child with few friends and eventually matures into a confident and well-liked young man. As a sixth-grader at Santa Rosa Middle School, Francisco first feels like he does not fit in, he is not very skilled at English and has few friends. And for the few relationships he does have, they do not last, such as Francisco's relationship with Peggy, a girl from his school. Her parents ask Francisco about his ethnicity, and once they find out he is Mexican, Peggy ignores him at school. Francisco has lost one of his friends, a rare commodity to him, and this has a greatly negative effect on him.
Discuss and analyze how and to what ends fantasy and reality are intertwined in stories you have studied. In this essay, we will discuss how magical realism uses elements of real and of magic to create the literary style. At first, we will try to give a background of what magic realism, where it comes from, and how a story can be labelled as such. Alejo Carpentier’s “Viaje a la semilla” and Julio Cortazar’s “La noche boca arriba” will be our focus.
Although it is nearly impossible to get an entirely accurate count, there exist at least 6,500 languages (Leonard et. al., 59). Something tells me that if language were about something as simple as communication, that number would be smaller. In all actuality, people feel deeply connected to their native languages for another reason. Language and culture are one and the same, and Gloria Anzaldua illustrates this in her piece “How to Tame a Wild Tongue” using examples of changes and suppressions of her language, to represent changes and suppressions of her culture as a whole.
The lifestyle of the Nankani has a profound influence on the art that is produced. These influences include the physical environment, the agrarian customs and the general Nankani culture itself. Hence, the Nankani Compound in Sirigu, Ghana, in its art celebrates all that is important to their life and this is shown (the same) on their pottery, baskets, their homes and even on the skin thus cementing cultural identity. Each design is symbolic of some aspect of their culture. These mural decorations, function as an interpretational art piece of the community and is therefore, very highly
