I was very interested by the idea of a lost city being rediscovered. Uncovering a stone-age building consists of a floor, with an impression for a fire pit and maybe some worn spots where people knelt to cook. The dramatic recreations show how Stonehenge could have been built at that time and why. This was interesting of how everything could have possibly been done. A large city in the Stone Age is made up of a thousand to a couple of thousand people, the size of the smallest of towns today.
The fact that I’d come home, come back and so obviously had been disconnected form my family. So it was a overwhelming experience, and I was just out of my depth, really, but at the same time it was very moving” Long shot of Bee walking through Katherine and learning about her culture accompanied with the non-diegetic music is tribal this emphasizes her sense of belonging. When Bee gets a job at an aboriginal Art Gallery she states that she first felt a sense of belonging when she left school and worked the art gallery and met aboriginal people for the first time. As she is talking about this event the non-diegetic music playing over the top of her speaking is harmonious which shows us this was good point in her life. A sense of belonging if felt as she meets other aboriginal people and learns more about her culture.
However the most remarkable of the existing pieces of the Olmec are their carvings of the Colossal Heads. The discovery of a colossal head in the nineteenth century spurred the first archaeological investigations of Olmec culture by Matthew Sterling. He along with his wife explored and excavated Tres Zapotes, La Ventana and San Lorenzo during 1930's and 1940's. "He and his wife Marion were led to the site of San Lorenzo by a report of a stoned eye looking up from a trail" (Coe pg66).San Lorenzo had first been settled about 1700 BC by Mixo-Zoqueans, but by 1500 BC it became thoroughly Olmec. The Olmec culture lasted about a thousand years.
Although she may not be wealthy, she is very “neat and tidy” (95). And she is still very lively, because she is willing to go through this intricate journey yet again, and it also seems that Phoenix is very fond of life itself, since she talks to the animals in the forest, “out of my way, all you foxes, owls, beetles, jack rabbits...” (95). Welty writes, “her hair came down on her neck in the frailest of ringlets, still black” (95), which represents that she is still far from being dead. When Phoenix meets the scarecrow, another symbol for death, instead she dances with it, as if representing that death is not near. Phoenix is even able to joke at
Jenna was a member of the 4-H club in Verona which gave her the opportunity to actually raise, show, and sell animals. Jenna has shown llamas, sheep and goats; she has a won some awards for her animals and has also made some money by selling them. Later in our interview I asked Jenna what she wanted to be doing in ten years and since I could already tell she liked the outdoors I wasn’t surprised to hear that she would like to be living in Colorado and would wants to be involved in nursing. Though I only had a short amount of time to talk with Jenna I found that we had more in common then I originally thought. She has a wide range of hobbies from backpacking to showing animals at the Dane county
The early people who scraped primitive drawings onto cave walls used some of the same tools and techniques that artisans still use today. Since then engraving gave the beginning for the art of inlay! D. Preview: Because the entire history of the art of inlay up to modern times is too extensive i will focus only on three questions: Why did people inlay? what materials and technique do modern artists use for inlay? Transition: Let`s find out why ancient people did inlay.
On the other hand, the habilis’ need for food led them to make tools used for hunting, another step towards the evolution of man. One and a half million years ago a new species of hominids appear, Homo ergaster with their long modern looking noses, bodies with less hair
Unit 6 -- Evolution Through Time Lesson Goal: Describe the development of life on Earth. Describe the major types of life that dominated the Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic Eras. Evidence through fossils state that the earliest life forms were that of microscopic microorganisms. Fossils are a wonderful agent in aiding scientist in the research of past organism existences. Fossils have allowed us to understand some of major types of life that dominated the early Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic Eras.
In the early days of sculpture, sculptures were small and crude. Even then these small figures tell us immense amounts about the culture they were created in. They also tell us when certain ideas originated, ideas that can been seen repeated over and over in later sculpture. The “Lion Man” is currently the world's oldest recovered statue, dating around 30,000 years old from the paleolithic period, it is believed to have been created by either early man or neanderthals. The sculpture of the “Lion Man” depicts a figurine of a lion standing straight up such as a man would stand.
