Introduction The Chauvet Cave is one of the most famous prehistoric rock art sites in the world which located in the Ardeche region of southern France. Chauvet Cave 's importance is based on two factors, firstly, is the aesthetic quality of these cave paintings. The Chauvet cave contains well-preserved and complex graphic panels of Paleolithic artwork. Secondly, the great age of the cave.
This art piece is very similar to the Gorham’s Cave Art and is slightly similar to the Venus of Willendorf. One noticeable similarity is Gormham’s Cave also used sharp stones to carve images and used the same technique of cross hatching. However, the Venus of Willendorf was similar to the La Pileta because of the use of sharp stones to carve images. The difference between my selected works is the fact that the La Pileta Cave consisted of 60 animal figures and some 50 serpent drawings.
My artworks for the project ‘Ordinary Extraordinary’ are all related to the Native American Spirit Animals, what my spirit animal is and how it relates to me. All six of my final drawings, except for one was in the medium pencil and two of my drawings, involved colour. The two artists I found and decided to do my research essay on, were Kirby Sattler, who paints portraits of Native American people in their traditional regalia and Julie Rhodes, who is an amazing wildlife artist, focusing specifically in the medium pencil. My first artist, Kirby Sattler, focuses mainly on portraits and profiles of Native American people in their traditional clothing, including feathers that represent something in their culture.
What connects with that is it gives us a change to view their culture, of how they dressed and ate overall which is really unique to see for historians. Form the discussions and detail we went into when it comes to this era and the art that they have, we can really see just how since the dawn of time, humans have always been artistic and that shows by the many artifices of art that they have left behind for us to see. The cave art is unique, because it shows the way humans during that time viewed animals and held them up
I’m inspired and awe-struck by his works especially the fact that he’s an all
The third key feature of Paleolithic society was their cultural pursuits and attempts at explaining supernatural occurrences through spirituality. Paleolithic hand and finger markings exist all over the world in caves. Some of these include the finger marks from the Rouffignac cave in France, dating to 18,000-9,000 B.C.E. and the handprints from the “Cueva de las Manos” in Argentina, from around 8,000 B.C.E. These cave drawings, along with Paleolithic artifacts such as flutes, carvings, and jewelry, suggest that this culture expressed themselves through art, music, dancing
Based on radiocarbon dating the Chauvet cave appears to have been used by humans during two distinct periods: the Aurignacian and the Gravettian. The cave is located in the Ardeche region of southern France, and it is known for the earliest and best-preserved figurative cave paintings in the world. What makes these cave paintings so unique and so special were how they were sculpted, and the patterns that were associated with not just this cave, but other caves in general during the prehistoric times. The most common stenciled arts in caves were large wild animals, such as bison, aurochs, deer, and horses. Many of these paintings were often associated with animals that were hunted by humans.
“What else can matter to us, other than how our lives feel from the inside?" (Nozick) This question was asked by Robert Nozick in response to an Experience Machine that would give a person any experience that they desired. Once plugged into this Experience Machine you cannot turn back to reality, you would not be able to know if you were in a type of a never ending vivid dream. This scenario has led to the debate over what the correct choice would be if you had the choice to plug into the machine. Nozick claimed that people should not plug into the Experience Machine. Some of his reasons are, "It is only because we first want to do the actions that we want the experiences of doing them." (Nozick, 43), "Someone floating in a tank is an indeterminate blob." (Nozick, 43), and "There is no actual contact with any deeper reality, though the experience of it can be simulated." (Nozick, 43). At first I thought “I would plug in! I would no longer feel any
I have always had a passion for drawing, painting, and crafting. Within the landscaping aspect of horticulture, I plan to focus more on the Hardscaping portion. I have done some Hardscaping on a few friends’ properties. I absolutely loved the planning, designing, and the construction of the project. Given the opportunity to step back and admire a piece of art representing my landscaping abilities is truly extraordinary.
There [was] a quiet beauty here... ”(31)The garden also uncovers the fact that he enjoys finding solace and peace. For example, Stephen observed how Matsu loved to find refuge in his garden because of its peaceful ambiance. Stephen tells about, “the garden, [which had] once again become his(Matsu’s) refuge, the only place he seems to feel any comfort. It’s there that Matsu [becomes] the artist; adding and mixing colors (p.73)
As I made my way in to the Averitt Center for the Arts, located locally in Statesboro, Georgia, I felt a sort of peace. The exterior of the Averitt Center is placed by an old-timey theatre, and is only accessible by walking which I liked because it made me feel like I was in the old days, when couples and individuals walked to the theatre with friends and family to enjoy a night out on the town. The interior was white and perfectly lit which made it seem very large and open, and like it had more work than it really did. This bright white color, mixed with just the right amount of lighting, made each piece of art stand out, making my decision a little harder than I believed it would be. Each of the three levels were laid out differently.
His writings are more about what is situations, like in his book “There Will Come Soft Rains” it is placed in post apocalyptic. He uses personification making the house seem alive. It is seen in the text when it said,”Until this day, how well the house had kept its peace. How carefully it had inquired, "Who goes there? What's the password?"
There are few instances when a person is influenced by something to the extent of questioning their life. Something that is so powerful that it can create emotion in all of the people who experience it. Artists fight to create this something in order to connect people through it. However, in today’s culture where fads come and go it is often difficult to find such works of art.
