Cultural – Quite a lot of caves contain finger paintings and art from thousands of years ago bringing cutrual value into them.
For my research paper, I am going to two about two types of art throughout certain time periods in history. What I am going to compare and differentiate are types of art within the Prehistoric time period, and the Roman time period. Within time periods in general, there are artworks that are relevant throughout their existing time period, and picked up later in future generations, where people can learn about their past cultures and various types of art. For the first time period, the Prehistoric period, it includes the Paleolithic culture and its art. It is divided into three parts. The lower Paleolithic, the middle Paleolithic, and the upper Paleolithic. During this time period, tools were a very essential

“The Beast in the Cave”, a short story written by notorious horror author, H.P. Lovecraft, chills readers to the bone as they drink in the rich imagery created by Lovecraft’s twisted mind. As the audience is immersed into the narrator’s world, a dark, claustrophobic cave, they feel the same horror and panic as the main character. How are they going to get out of that cave? What is that mysterious sound coming closer to them? Are they going to die in there? However, was fear the only reason Mr. Lovecraft penned this petrifying piece? Perhaps Lovecraft was trying to convey a deeper meaning beneath his dark text and thrilling conclusion. Maybe he was determined to shine a light on a simple flaw of human nature. Lovecraft may have been trying to
This chapter was the start of some very fascinating art that was first discovered during that time, this showed the genius and creativity of the people of what they could create, it represented not just their culture but their way of life. It also represented the ways that they served and viewed the world as a whole during this time. This chapter highlighted the many small status that was built during this time, they were are quiet remarkable to say the least for many things they could make art with. In one of our discussion questions, we talked about the famous women of Willendorf and what that state represented to the culture. I always thought this was the way people viewed females during this time but it could be looked at from multiple angles. As I said before, this chapter brought up some great status that was created and also cave art which is fascinating and
The painting, The Basket Chair c.1885 by Berth Morisot, and the painting The Orange Trees c. 1878 by Gustave Caillebotte, are both magnificent and interesting pieces that I got the opportunity to see. The paintings are both wonderful pieces and their composition overall is very impressive. Both paintings have different aspects in the way the artist displayed modernism, formal characteristics, class and gender, and the subject matter of the painting itself. These are great distinctions between Berth Morisot’s The Basket Chair, and Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, but both paintings have their own distinctive style and sense of modernism that inspired the painters’
What sort of evidence (or quality of evidence) will be necessary to establish firmly the presence of a pre-Clovis culture in the Americas?

A prehistoric painting that was created before the Venus Willendorf was Gorham’s Cave Art which was made in 37,000 BCE. This art piece is Abstract Rock Engravings in Gorham 's Cave, Gibraltar. An interesting fact is that it is the earliest art of its type in the world. The
Development/Support: Jewel Cave and Wind Cave: The next day we went on two cave tours, one being Jewel Cave and the other Wind Cave. (Citation) Jewel Cave had many magnificent geologic formations within it. I remember it getting really cold and being amazed at how quickly the temperature dropped as we continued to venture deeper into the cave. This is the first time I had ever been in a cave and I was wonderstruck. I distinctly remember being excited about Geology and wanting to know more about it. Wind Cave was our last cave tour for the day and had its own interesting features. Although it did not have as many unique features like Jewel Cave, it howled at the mouth. The wind was coming from within the cave and coming out at the opening. I learned so much about the history of the caves in South Dakota and how adventurers and scientists explored and mapped the caves.
In Argentina there is a cave names The Cueva de las Manos ( Cave of the Hands) that contains art between 13,00 and 9,500 years ago which talks about the culture of live stating way earlier than we though it did in South America. Tourist have been visit the cave since the mid-nineteen century and recording their impression of the paintings. The ones responsible for the paintings are the ancestors of the historic hunter-gatherer communities of Patagonia, which was said by UNESCO in their website.
Basketmaker II society was a combination of highly nomadic hunter-gathers with small crops of maize. They oscillated between the traditional band-level economic and social practices and tribal-level sedentary farmer economic and social practices (Smiley 2016: Unit 9). Populations became larger, thus the need for a more settled lifestyle. However, they encompassed an area of about 600km wide (Smiley 2016: Unit 9). Basketmaker II society understood the value of watching crops, storing seed, had boundaries and introduced maize. I will discuss life through five, five year life stages of a Basketmaker II about 1,400 years ago.
Hello friends. My name is Sam Worcester, however most people call me by my superhero name: ThinkSafe. Not many people can say that they have saved the world but I can. I have saved the world, and this is my story. Starting when I was just a regular 12 year old boy back in 1989, growing up in the great state of Arizona. Not much happened there, but I did manage to find some adventure going into the Grand Canyon when I could. My parents always told me to be safe, which I was. One day as I was touring a seemingly deserted area, I had stumbled upon a cave. I guess I had wandered off too far because I had no clue where I was, but that didn't mat-ter, I always liked exploring new parts and I always marked where I had been. This cave was strange there were symbols on the wall that were glowing.
More than 500 years ago, the Inca Empire was founded. In their time, they would someday become the largest empire in the world in the 16th century. The Incas would live in what is now Peru and the Andes Mountain. They would be a thriving people. It would be the home of about 10 million people. The Incas had different cultures and were a lot different then how we live today.
Roman Courtship is a 276.2 x 154 cm oil on canvas painting made by William Ernest Reynolds-Stephens in 1990. It was a gift given by Seymour Lasker in 1966 and is position in the Ringling Museum in the collection of European and American Art. This painting is two-dimensional and since it was oil on canvas it was able to be moved easier, especially since artist's travels all the time. In general artists chose oil on canvas because great effects were easier to pull off with the minimal materials needed.
