  • Mycenae Lion Wall

    land Greece. One reason I feel that the Lion Gate is significant is because it shows the Mycenaean’s outlook on life. The Mycenaean’s were far more defensive than the Minoans based upon this entrance. They lived behind very thick walls known as the Cyclopean Masonry. It was named this because according to legend, only a creature as big as the cyclops could move the large stones the wall was built with. This entrance way and its surrounding walls makes it very clear the Mycenaean’s felt they needed to defend themselves against some sort of enemy. This piece of art is also significant because it shows that a lot of thought was put into sculpture, even this long ago in history. The Mycenaean’s were smart enough to realize that in order for this arch to work they would have to somehow distribute the weight across the arch. This influenced the overall outcome of the arch making it have the triangular shape, so that it could narrow up to eventually make just above the peak be hollow, lessening the overall weight. The triangular shape also acts as a relieving triangle for the door that was once below. The door was wooden and reinforced by a sliding bar. All in all I feel that this work is not only significant but also very interesting. It is still standing today on the peninsula of Peloponnesus, although Mycenae was destroyed long ago. I think that this sculpture showed us just a small taste of what the Greeks were capable of building. I also think that this is…

    did just that: told a story. But in modern times, pottery is now used more for aesthetics. Moreover, the stories told on these works have changed meaning as time has worn on. There are two main types of columns in antiquity: Doric and Ionic. Doric columns are very simplistic; they have no ornate topping and have no base. Instead, the column itself is topped by an entablature containing alternating decorative lines and blank spaces, called tryglyphs and metopes, respectively. Ionic order…

  • Comparing The Parthenon And The Pantheon

    Though the front of each is similar, the Parthenon has a rectangular shape supported with Doric order columns along all four sides and the temple for Athena on one side with a treasury on the other supported by Ionic order columns on the interior (Silverman, n.d.).

  • Roman Architecture Style

    each style is generally dictated by the capital at the top of the column. The Romans used them to commemorate people, places, or even events by carving into the columns.

    opened about two weeks ago in downtown Winter Park. Usually new restaurants are disorganized, employees have no idea what they are supposed to do, and the managers are frequently unsure of their business structures as well. I was not expecting too much, but since it was a restaurant a friend of my host parents recommended I was hoping for a good experience. From outside the restaurant looked very clean, pretty, and welcoming. When we walked inside it was surprising. Compared to other burger…
