  • Mycenae Lion Wall

    The piece of artwork I have chosen to critique is the Lion Gate architecture found on page 39 in the textbook. The Lion Gate is the main entrance to the citadel of Mycenae. Mycenae is located on top of a small mountain. The gate is ten feet both wide and high, and narrows as it rises. The triangular shape prevents the lintel from falling in and breaking by evenly distributing weight. It was constructed of rock, gold, and clay. It is also a perfect example of a post-and-lintel arch. The top…

  • Modern Buildings ( Built After 1900 )

    Think about modern buildings (built after 1900) you may have seen either in person or in pictures that were designed in a classical style.

  • Ancient Art Research Paper

    Ancient art has influenced the modern world and modern perceptions of art by means of architecture and artisanal craft.
