Art history

Answer one paragraph for every question

1- Observation: Textiles and Abstraction

How do the textiles of Paracas delineate an understanding of the belief system of its people?  Why do you think there is a strong tendency in abstraction?

 

2-Observation: Realism in Moche Vessels

Post your observation on the realistic rendering of Moche vessels discussed in this Module.  Please be specific in your observations.

 

3-Reflection: Afterlife in South America

Reflection: What you think of the spirituality persistent in the three different cultures we studied in this module, Paracas, Nasca and Moche.  How are they similar, different?  The best way to address this discussion is to think of specific objects, examples.
