    In this paper, I am going to talk about the statue of Pharaoh Tanwetamani who is a Nubian king of the 25th dynasty. He is the person who is actually not an Egyptian but had ruled the Nile valley temporarily. Therefore, he was allowed to possess the Egyptian royal title as well as the sculptured style. I am going to compare this statue with both the works of same culture, such as Khafre, and the works of different culture, for instance, Kroisos and the Doryphoros. The Statue of Pharaoh…

Psycho starts with Crane stealing the money of a client at the bank she works at, and leaving town to give the money to her boyfriend. On the way, she stops at Bates Motel to stay the night. At the hotel, she meets…

    Normal. Norman being the child who relied on his mother, Norma being the mother and Normal being the Norman who despises his mother. The novel ends with Sam hoping that Lila won't forget him and hopes for a possible future together (Robert Bloch's Psycho II does show they do get together). As for the final scene in the film with "mother" saying she wouldn't hurt a fly, that thankfully is the same and yes, it still gives me goosebumps to this…

    Everyday we pass by a work of art and don't even acknowledge its existence. Art is everywhere we go, for example, a statue in a park is a work of art, it’s not only there for decorations. It has a purpose for being at that particular location, with hope that someone may notice it. Having the opportunity to learn about previous artworks, one of them really stood out to me from ancient Egypt. When an individual hears Egyptian art they mostly think about mummies, pyramids, or Pharaohs. But I came…

    ‍ Why aren’t tombs explored more? People may think that people going into tombs would lead to robbery, but what about experts? Egyptian tombs should be explored by special scientists because they have many un-explored areas, have many riches to discover, and new kings to learn about. The beginning tomb robbers were in the time of Rameses IX. Rameses lived in about 1124 BC to 1106 BC. Rameses IX lived in the twentieth Egyptian Dynasty. His acquaintance, called Paser, made up the theory of making…

    Whenever a film is produced there is conflict with whether viewers liked it or not; however, the answer to this statement is based off how the producer directs the movie. Did the film look realistic, is it exciting? Movie watchers look for this, they want to watch something interesting, not something that will bore them. Furthermore, the movie Psycho, was a black and white slasher produced in 1960 by Alfred Hitchcock. Psycho shows many scenes that will leave the audience confused, a motel owner…

    Hello, I am Geoff Barnes and I am here with Kirralee Bishop to debate the factors contributing the design of Teotihuacano architecture. Was Teotihuacan designed for Aesthetics or Ritual? The monumental architecture in the heart of Teotihuacan creates a unique sense of place. The scale of the pyramids, the far reaching stretch of the avenue of the dead, the symmetry of the walls, the rhythmic placement of the temples and highly decorated dwellings, filling the visitor’s peripheral vision,…

As with any cataclysmic event in history, the fall of Constantinople and the consequences that followed are documented and presented differently in “The…

Though this text was likely written in the first Century AD, shortly after the Roman annexation of Egypt (470), the narrative takes place over 1,200 years earlier, during the reign of Ramesses II. In many ways, the fact…
