It was made of an inflatable vinyl balloon that could be inflated to attract attention from the audience before a speaker spoke from the sculpture's platform. However, it was eventually replaced with a hard one because the soft one could not endure the weather and thus began to deteriorate. Why did Henri Matisse choose to depict goldfish as the main subject in his painting Goldfish? From the end of January 1912 to April 1912, Henri Matisse lived in Tangier, Morocco. He was fascinated by how the local population would day-dream for hours whilst gazing into goldfish bowls.
“It’s amazing how people can get so excited about a rocket to the moon and not give a damn about smog, oil leaks, the devastation of the environment with pesticides, hunger, disease. When the poor share some of the power that the affluent now monopolize, we will give a damn.” This quote shows that people did not care about their community but he did, and he did something about it. Harriet Tubman helped slaves by returning again and again to the South to guide fugitive slaves gain their freedom. She did it to save people and to make the world better. They both did it because they thought it was right and to make a difference to this world.
Nathan Kim Professor Skripsky English 12 September 2016 Observation When i visited stearns wharf i saw many different kind of people at the bridge and that people from all over the place is visiting the pier. Stearns wharf is known to grab people’s attention for fishing, walking around, and taking pictures at the end of the pier. When you see people either walking or driving their car on the pier, it always seems like a place to stop by for whoever is new and driving around the town, they see that people are going on there to look at something so they would follow to. My observation was all of the above of how i saw it when i visited it that day. I also saw when you were on the wharf i saw signs and buildings all over the pier with people going to the places where they either have fish or just souvenirs.
Other times, warriors and citizens from the Aztec Empire went willingly to get sacrificed, it was seen as a death even honorable than getting killed in war. The Aztecs made many other offerings such as food, rubber, feathers, jewels and animal blood but human blood was the most prized by the gods. At the peak of the Aztec Empire, more than one million people were worshipping Huitzilopochtli as the Mexica required the citizens of defeated city-states to worship their gods. Huitzilopochtli affected the worldview of the Mexica in terms of their knowledge. The ritual of sacrificing people for Huitzilopochtli gave the Aztecs knowledge about the human body and surgical skills.
Religion can be very powerful and can influence people to behave in certain ways. This is especially true when referring to the Aztecs. They took their religion and culture very seriously which is why is the main reason they were so focused on human sacrifice and bloodletting. It begins with Aztec creation myths as they are the foundation to the Aztecs sacrificing themselves for the gods. “They jumped into the sacrificial fire and became the sun and the moon.” (AD1, p.3) Because the gods like Nanahuatzin and Tecuciztecatl volunteered themselves for the Sun and to keep it alive and healthy, future Aztecs felt obliged to further maintain the Sun through various sacred rituals.
Richard MacNeish writes about his archeological sequence where 30 or so cities were dug in the Tehuacan Valley. Some of the sites were then expanded to show deep stratification with immense cultural relevance to the area. 140 stratified floors and occupational zones were found from these few sites. Because this part of Mexico receives so little rain, about two months out of the year, the preservation of the artifacts was incredibly intact. In 55 of the layers, there was a complete intact show of food remains, feces, and normally perishable human remains.
Tikal is a city “located in the north of the Petén region of Guatemala, [and] was a major city which flourished between 300 and 850 CE”(Cartwright). While the city is located on ground level, the urban planning of Tikal shows much forethought as it “consists of nine different plazas and courts connected by causeways and ramps and has, in all, over 3,000 structures” (Cartwright). The towering structures are mammoth in size, but are given room to breath because “the buildings are spread over some 15 square kilometres, and so the city was relatively low in density”(Cartwright). Though the Maya and the Inca practiced different religions, they both had animal worship and reverence through art. The religious aspects of mayan culture is easily seen in the architecture of the great city as many stones are inscribed with messages describing or paying homage to their gods (the Maya had a written language).
Mexico also has a high crime rate. The population of Mexico is mestizos, descendants of Spaniards and native Indians, the Indians themselves have also survived, but are in a deplorable state, their lives have not yet changed much. Indians worship their gods, widely known cult of the sun, left over from the Aztec, worship him, pray, make sacrifices and strongly revered. The architecture and culture of the ancient peoples is the most attractive in Mexico, and thousands of tourists come here. The feast day of the Dead in Mexico, especially exotic, which is the symbol of the Calavera - the skull.
He intermittently spent the next 15 years in Rome exploring and surveying the monuments and ruins of the ancient city. He spent a great deal of time measuring and calculating the proportions of columns and pediments that had been invented by the Greeks and refined by the Romans. He was not the first person to study the ancient ruins of Rome but he was almost certainly the first to closely study the structural and engineering principals used by the Romans. He would have taken particular interest in the structural methods used by the Romans to vault large spaces. He would have seen perfect examples all across Rome including The Golden house of Nero and more impressive still The Pantheon.
A first half half hat-trick by Joe Burgess set up a 34-10 victory for the Bears over Wyong Roos at Morrie Breen Oval. Both teams had eight wins a piece heading into this round and a victory today was important for their semi final aspirations. It was Wyong who would take the early lead with a successful Tyler Cornish penalty kick. That goal would be the only joy Roos fans would have as the Bears stuck their claws in. Abbas Miski almost got over the line for the Bears, but on the next play winger Joe Burgess scored in the left corner to open the account for the Bears.
The companies that build telescopes on Mauna Kea are desecrating something that is very meaningful to Hawaiian culture. They are desecrating the sacred lands by digging up the soil, paving down concrete everywhere possible, they are basically disregarding anybody’s thoughts or feelings for this land. TMT or Thirty Meter Telescope is currently the biggest news that is happening in Hawaiian politics. This telescope is said to better improve the worlds understanding of space and would greatly progress the scientific community, yet it also is taking up 5 acres of land on Mauna Kea. On the TMT website it states that the company drafted for 5 acres of land for their construction yet they also state that they will only be using 1.44 acres for the
The Deffufa is still an important ceremonial location today and many people visit it. Within ancient Nubian artifacts there is also evidence of what else was important to the ancient Nubians. Nubians were a part of a culture that worshipped cattle and the vital green lands along the Nile River. The gods replenished their lands and appeasement of the gods guaranteed that they would not face famine. Within Nubia rock art there art illustrations of cattle grazing on fertile lands.
This time period was called the Old Kingdom (2660-2180 B.C). The Old Kingdom was a time of building great Pyramids. The big pyramids built at this time, were the Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids are the last of the 7 wonders of the world still up and not destroyed. The Pyramids were made out of limestone and weighed a lot.
The Pentagon took 16 months to build, with 13,000 builders, which costed 1.1 billion dollars. The builders used 41,492 concrete pilings to make the foundation, and 435,000 cubic yards of concrete. The builders used 680,000 tons of sand and gravel for the concrete. It has a total floor area of 6.6 million square feet, one of the world’s largest office buildings. It stands five stories tall, which is 77 feet high, and two below-ground levels, labeled the basement.
