For example the tear on Marry’s face, the texture of the fabric or the wound from Christ. All help to present the sadness atmosphere in the painting. The painting is highly realistic.

The arm is stretched forward weighing the head, his lips tight and eyes focused downwards. The man holds a sword in the other hand, offering a clue into the decapitation. The background consists of a dark room where walls are b;arely noticeable, angular lines in the top left hand corner encompasses both figures. The main elements of Caravaggio’s artwork are tone, line and form. Tone has been utilised throughout the image to depict the fall of light (or lack of) on the human figure and the drapery of clothes.
Parmigianino’s Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror, created in 1524, is, as its title indicates, a self-portrait painted of oil on a carved, convex wooden panel. Albrecht Durer’s Self-Portrait is oil on panel and was created in the year 1500. As they are both self-portraits, the use of a mirror is necessary. Mirrors would usually create a perfect undistorted reflection, but it is quite the opposite for both of these portraits. In Parmigianino’s work, the mirror itself is distorted, as Parmigianino created a wooden base that is convex to mimic such a mirror, which heightens the overall effect.
Maya Lin’s Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. is a breathtaking sight. Finished in 1982, the memorial is composed of two walls, joined in the center to form a wide V shape. The element of the piece – black granite polished to a mirror shine – highlights the engraved names of the men and women killed during the Vietnam War. The names are listed in chronological order according to date of death. The design principle appears to be inviting.
In all royal burials, with the exception of Akhenaten, the deceased needed both a funerary temple and a tomb. Tutankhamun's tomb, KV62, was oddly small for a pharoah. This is believed to be because of his sudden death at the age of 18. His tomb was prepared by Ay, the net pharoah, so it is possible that it is Ay's beliefs present in Tutankhamun's tomb. The burial chamber of Tutankhamun's tomb contains elements of both Am Duat beliefs and Osiris cult beliefs as shown in Source J.
Chapter 5 The Skeletal System Although the word skeleton comes from the Greek word meaning “dried-up body,” our internal framework is so beautifully designed and engineered that it puts any modern skyscraper to shame. Strong, yet light, it is perfectly adapted for its functions of body protection and motion. The skeleton is subdivided into two divisions: the axial skeleton, the bones that form the longitudinal axis of the body, and the appendicular skeleton, the bones of the limbs and girdles. In addition to bones, the skeletal system includes joints, cartilages, and ligaments (fibrous cords that bind the bones together at joints). The joints give the body flexibility and allow movement to occur.
In addition, the human anatomy is thoroughly crafted and in precise proportions with the Minoan body form, in accordance with the boxing figure illustrated on the Rhyton excavated from Hagia Triada. In comparison, the rough cup reflects the hard edges that
Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art that can be used for both defense and health. When practiced at a slow pace, it can be extremely relaxing and stress relieving. Each move flows into the next without pause, and is accompanied by deep breathing. Today, Tai Chi is mainly used as a therapeutic way to relieve stress and clear the body and mind. Although, it was originally developed as a form of self-defense.
The legacy is the perception of himself that the pharaoh left behind in the wake of his death. However, when the façade is pulled back, an entirely different figure is shown; the real Tutankhamun. Upon entering the tomb, the northern wall can immediately be glimpsed. The mural covering the wall depicts three different scenes. In one scene, Tut is identified in the form of Osiris, the God of the afterlife.
