Within the pantheon almost all lines draw the viewers eyes to the Oculus. Another key element of the pantheon aside from the Oculus are the coffers, in addition to providing weight reduction within the dome the concentric rings created by the coffers radiate out from the Oculus carrying the ring down to meet the wall mimicking the Oculus (see fig. 1).

Seeing as both cultures are constantly being associated with one another I decided to compare the Cupisnique vessel with a vessel from the Moche civilization, which existed from approximately 100 to 800 C.E. (Module 5.4.). The Moche vessel that was introduced in this course was from The Fowler Museum located at UCLA. The ceramic vessels from the Moche civilization were said to portray warriors, rulers, and gods. Moche vessels were also buried with their owners to accompany them in the afterlife.

The skirt part of the dress is wide and has a board design that separates the top half of the dress from the lower half as, the bottom half is green with white patterns through and board of white and brown patterns at the bottom. In the foreground, the artist, use a light tannish-brown carpet with white patterns and a darker brown to show the contrast and depth of the foreground and the background. The "Calavera 4" painting made of Plasticine on wood represent a Pacman theme foreground with the reddish color tone in the front and changes to an off gray as it reaches the middle ground, and a thin blue line divides the foreground and background of the Pacman theme as the background was a wall. On the right side of the artwork, the artists place a skull offset to give the skull a three-dimensional look and underneath the skull place, a shadow to bring out the 3-D effect.
Her stance is in contrapposto – one leg forward, one shoulder back. The most noticeable is the triangular shape of the robe. This robe also divides the composition into two, from her hair and right hand down one third of the sculpture towards her left side makes Geraert’s use of the rule of thirds apparent. These lines and the structure of the sculpture’s front bring viewers’ attention from her foot on the bottom up through the robe to the crowded area of the child’s feet, up to her hair and face and thus down to the child’s arm down to his

In the other hand, the Mayan civilization developed in Yucatan Peninsula around 200 B.C., and mysterious disappeared around 900 A.D. However, these two cultures share many factors in common such as developing calendars and building pyramids. Even though civilizations developed in different time periods, they can still have many factors in common such as environment, language, and architecture. Although the two civilizations flourished in different parts of the world, their environment shared some common features. As noted before, the Mayans thrived in the Yucatan peninsula, which is made up of jungles and lowlands.
The drapery gives us an upside down V shape. This V shape is unified in its size and composition. There are two long rectangles that make up the middle portion of the drapery that sits directly in the center of the V, right at the point. The breasts are made of two large circular shapes. At the pinnacle of these are smaller circles.

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.
