2 Unit Individual Project HUMA205-1201A-11 Nicholas Wiggins American Intercontinental University Online 01/14/2012 Mary-Catherine Ferguson Abstract When we look at ancient art, there are many different types of artwork. There are numerous different places around the world where ancient art was created. Today, we can see some of the ancient art that was created by visiting museums around the world. In this particular paper, I compare and contrast two pieces of art from two different places and explain why they fall into a certain time period to be called ancient art. Individual Project 2 Horse Plaque (North China, 3rd 1st Century B.C.) The plaque in the shape of a horse was created long ago in Northern China between the 3rd and 1st B.C. It is a three dimensional plaque that is about three and one-eighth inches. The plaque is casted in silver with remnants of gilding on its surface. It is uncertain of the techniques used to create the horse but many ideas could be interpreted. This plaque symbolizes the numerous pastoral, seminomadic, and horse-riding tribes that inhabited Central Asia (Horse Plaque, 2006). A horse is depicted in the plaque. From the curves and twists of the silver horses hindquarter to the poll of the horse, the artist uses curvy lines throughout the plaque. The style and imagery found in the Horse Plaque can be seen in some earlier objects made by IndoEuropean Scythian people living on the Iran plateau (Horse Plaque, 2006). The hindquarters, the girth and the muzzle of the horse signify strength and beauty. The fact that it was created with silver shows that it was intended as a gift for the Yuezhi, whom various Chinese centers maintained an active trade with. Head of a Pharaoh (2675-2130 B.C.E.) The Head of a Pharaoh is a depiction of an Egyptian pharaoh with a mustache and headgear. The Head of a Pharaoh was carved in Dynast five or six, about 2675 to 2130 B.C.E. The statue is a three-dimensional portrait that stands seventy-three about centimeters tall. It was created from the natural resources stone and copper in Egypt. The tall crown with the round top, known as the white crown, depicted in the in the statue signifies the pharaohs rule over southern Egypt. The human face that is portrayed in the sculpture of the pharaoh head originally belonged to a full statue (Head of a pharaoh, 2012). Statues of pharaohs in tombs served as a defining image of a deceased pharaoh. Since the sculpture resembles a pharaoh, it signifies beauty and ruling. The statue is bronze and smooth in texture. It has curvy lines with a few minor straight lines resembling a human-like structure. Although we cannot identify the pharaoh, it is understood that the original statue may have included a hieroglyphic inscription naming the pharaoh (Head of a pharaoh, 2012). It can be inferred that this statue has a political and respectable background due to a pharaoh being depicted. The main differences between the horse and pharaoh are the messages that each gives. The horse was a gift of appreciation to a member of the Yuezhi and the head signifies respect and honor that the people of Egypt had for the pharaoh. Also the fact the plaque is a horse and the pharaoh is a head make them different. The pharaoh was created as an external image of a deceased pharaoh. The two works of art fits into the context of the 30,000 B.C.E to the 500 C.E. because of the type of material that is used. Cooper, stone and silver was seen being used in the ancient art. The reason for the creation of the artwork also plays a role into the time period. References Frank, P. (2011). PREBLES ARTFORMS (10th Ed). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall.
