Choose just 1 (one) numbered assignment only!
(1) COMPARE the Old Kingdom Egyptian “Kahfre enthroned’ c. 2490-
2472 bc with “Seated Scribe” c. 2620- 2500 bc from the same place and
period. How do they express Egyptian Theory of the Afterlife and the form
and sculptural presentation the social status of the OLD KINGDOM
individuals represented,in terms of sculptural form, size, formality, use of
materials? HOW DO THEY FIT WITH OLD KINGDOM STYLE?
(2) COMPARE The OLD KINGDOM EGYPTIAN “Great Pyramid of Khafre’
2520- 2494 bc with the NEW KINGDOM “Temple Tomb Of Queen Hatshepsut”
1473 – 1458 bc, built about 1,000 years apart. BOTH are primarily large TOMBS,
though “Hatshepsut” also functions as a TEMPLE- explain the reasons for this
difference in the CONTEXT OF DIFFERENT STYLES. HOW DO THEY SHOW
OLD KINGDOM and NEW KINGDOM STYLE CHARACTERISTICS?
(3) COMPARE The CLASSICAL Greek DORIC ORDER “the Parthenon, Temple
of Athena” 447 – 338 bc with the IONIC ORDER “The Erechtheion” 421- 405
bc, built one after the other on the ATHENIAN ACROPOLIS. What are the
differing functions of these large ambitious Temples? Why are these buildings so
particularly influential for the European future? Describe the DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN the two ARCHITECURAL ORDERS, DORIC and IONIC
(4) COMPARE the Greek ARCHAIC “Kouros” of 525 bc with CLASSICAL
Polykleitos of Argos, “The Spear Bearer” 450 bc (the original was called the
“Canon”) which embodies CLASSICAL PERIOD sculpture in Athens. WHY?
(DESCRIBE THIS WORK AS AN ORIGINAL NOT AS A COPY or you will
do this paper over!) Discuss the several ways this work shows the innovations of the
CLASSICAL era, why the shift to CONTRAPPOSTO poses was revolutionary and
defines European art. How do mathematics play a role?
