Inside, the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted. . . . Against the walls were eight bunks, five of them made up with blankets and the other three showing their burlap ticking.
The small description beside the painting stated that the painting may have been made sometime between 1447-1449. Unlike the previous painting the wooden frame that holds the portrait of Virgin and Child is very plain and basic. The painting is Tempera on Panel, the artist has used a lot of bold colors. The focus of the painting is Virgin in black dress with some gold and the Christ with a red wrap around his chest. The image does not show the same warmth and initmacy we see in the first painting.
The Chapel uses wood as its main supporting material, while the tower uses stonework. The stonework is very detailed and carefully crafted in the tower, while the wooded beams in the Chapel are not as detail oriented. The detail in construction is the main difference between the two spaces. The Chapel is very pleasing to view, but it could be considered a bit drab or boring. The stonework within the tower is very aesthetically pleasing and provides a sense of time and careful preparation.
And this sculpture evoked through the original size, used materials, and figural types of sculpture. Seated Guanyin Bodhisattva made by joined and polychromic wood and then painted and gilded. The sculpture painted just basic three colors which are red, green, and nude or wooden color. These painted colors make him looks gentle and calmly. This sculpture does not look made by hard material like stone, it feels soft.
The temple itself is architecturally simple, the inside area consists of a small, open antechamber and a more private inner sanctum where offerings would take place. Even though the architecture of the temple is not incredibly bold, it has extremely intricate and beautiful carvings and embellishments on the wall that are quite beautiful. The base of the temple is decorated with reliefs of growing plants (probably papyrus and lotus). The temple and the gate both have the same image of the sun with the wings of wings engraved above the entrances. There are also vulture wings carved into the ceiling of the antechamber.
The painting consists of a picture of a brown pipe in the center with the phrase “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” under the pipe. This phrase translated means “This is not a pipe.” Comparing and contrasting both pieces of art I can see many similarities and differences. Both artists used a pipe in their paintings. William Harnett’s painting had more items which gave more things that the viewer could look at and focus on analyzing and gives a realistic view. William’s message can be perceived as trying to establish that smoking can be seen as laid back and calming.
The main building is rather small but it feels very inviting and warm. The colors used inside the church are a neutral palette of choices. This makes one feel quite welcome. All of the windows are stained glass with reds, greens, yellows, and blues. The shapes of the windows are of spades.
The insulation and the water heaters of those times was called inadequate by today’s standards. The homes and building of the present times have better insulation, the windows are sealed better and also last way longer then the windows that were around in the 50’s. The homes of today have better technology to keep the house either hotter or colder. The outside doors of the structure are now made of steel which is less drafty and also is easy to lock and secure. The homes from the 50’s had plastic and copper that would fall apart or break easier and more often, and the materials that are used today have a better
The setting in the story takes place in mostly the one place – the living room. This is because this is where the main character Mary Maloney is most of the time. It’s also where the main part of the story happens. The setting in this story is warm, cosy, safe and private. It is unusual because when the reader is reading it, they would probably expect everything to remain sweet and romantic but instead it changes and the setting becomes dark and eerie: “The room was warm, the curtains were closed, the two table lamps were lit.” This shows how cosy the living room was and how the writer tries to set the scene as a safe place and not as a place where any type of murder could be committed.
Not to mention that they are hidden if use when making a bookshelf. Dadoes are the best choice for bookshelves and cabinets. When it comes down to it, dado joints are far better than butt joints because there stronger, easier to make, and virtually hidden when used on
