Both artifacts from the Cupisnique and Moche are in the form of a stirrup spout vessel, which was a very common vessel shape among Pre-Columbian cultures of South America. The main form of the two artifacts are also very similar given that both only portray the facials structure of the human body. And aside from being made out of the same medium of ceramic, the two artifacts are also known for having some ceremonial function. The Cupisnique portrays a spiritual transformation, while the Moche created pieces meant primarily for the
It is quite hard to imagine, but human civilizations along with the development of human culture already exist for thousands of years. Many things have changed with the course of time and many civilizations simply died out, leaving after themselves numerous open questions and riddles for historians and anthropologists. One of the most interesting ancient civilizations with outstanding culture was Egypt. Among all its cultural peculiarities the idea of woman and her role in society seems to resemble the modern one in many aspects. The life of Egyptians was closely connected with their gods and cults of them.

He spoke about the luxuries which are very few but went on to speak about the dress of both sexes which are primarily the same.It consisted of a long a piece of calico, which was wrapped very loosely around the waist of both sexes. It seems as their mannerism would be exactly as presented through the text. If they don 't have much they aren 't going to complain about anything because they never experience anything better than what they don 't already have now. Olauduh Equiano experiences seems to be similar to those of historical portrayal of Africans in literature and film. The reason this is true is because in films they portray Africans as people who wear loose clothing to cover up their body parts.
Pearl doesn’t completely understand what the A means, but she knows that it has something to do with her. She doesn’t understand that it has to anything with sin. Pearl’s creativity and individuality makes her like no one else in the Puritan
The beautifully sculpted Memi and Sabu, shows the endurance of emotion through ages. This small statue was carved using painted limestone, and is thought to have been made in the Old Kingdom, 4th Dynasty Egypt between 2575 and 2465 B.C. It is likely originally from Giza due to its similarities to other statues discovered in that area. The texture of the soft limestone would likely have felt rough, yet the statue appears very smooth, probably from being painted, and catches the light well, urging the viewer to touch it. Its intended purpose was likely to depict a husband and wife for the purpose of supplying a "home" for their spirits in the afterlife.

Yet another reference to an image of skin is found in stanza 11 line 6 where she describes her “I could not change, I could not shed/my skin in the gray water”. This image of a girl in a tub of gray water is powerful. She is stripped down to nothing and under it all is her skin which is not white and she is not able to shed it. It is what it is: Asian
The Tequesta Indians were a small, humble and calm tribe. First tribe in South Florida and made Biscayne Bay their home giving them an abundance of plants, ani-mals and materials for the production of tools and crafts materials.

One of the most common theories is that she was solely a symbol of fertility. The lack of facial features, could have been intentional to show the importance of her body. The Aphrodite of Knidos is a statue, just like human proportion, standing 5’6’’. Unlike the Venus sculpture, the face of Aphrodite is adequately considered. She stands on two feet and in a contrapasto
In Sad Case, what stood out to me was that the dancers were painted an almost nude color and they had little to nothing on. They wore briefs and the girls wore a tank top. By the costumes being so form fitting, there was not any distinct difference between the dancers. This was enjoyable because it gave the illusion that all the dancers were one person. The color
As seen in Europa, she has none of these qualities. Her body is not elongated; instead it is made overly squat. She has no sweeping curves due to her squashed position; her neck is made invisible. Her breast is shoved up and flat combining with the hardness of her chest and her leg is made short due to the foreshortening of her position and is definitely not slender. Also "according to Firenzuola, one of the most essential parts of a woman 's beauty is her hair," Europa’s hair is barely seen.

Rose Quartz occurs only in massive formations, with no crystal faces, edges or points. It is often hazy or turbid; therefore it lacks good transparency. It also contains microscopic fibers, which can on occasion produce a cat’s eye or star effect within the stone.
