Time Traveling, Art Historian Book Chapters Aisha Martin HUM/205- World Culture and the Arts (AXIA) Instructor: Melissa Ernstes It’s so excited to be an author and a part of a world-renowned art historian, and have the ability to travel back in time to any period of history. With the ability to share my analysis of artwork from the three time periods that I have visit during my historian time travels. I am sure that you will enjoy reading my book of time travels and the eye popping experience from these great cultures that I have visit. The Roman Civilization, Early Chinese Civilization, and the Early Japanese Civilization have become an adventure during my travel. On my adventures we will find out about the art, the purpose, the meaning of the work, what it expresses and the cultural development. “FIRST STOP’’ Roman Civilization; was in 20 B.C.E. in Roman and I was looking at this statue, a piece called the Augustus of Primporta, he had a look as if he was the emperor, that was heroic and self-contained. The purpose for this piece is that he builds the Ara Pacis “Altar of Peace” and was made in the 13-9 B.C.E. Which was the

greatest artistic work during his time? The meaning and how it related to the creator was that Roman always shows specific people at a specific event and in Ara Pacis. Augustus was depicted with his wife Livia, while I was looking at this statue and it was showing how he was barefoot with a cupid riding on beside of his right leg. It represents its culture and showed me how heroic this guy was and it shows me sings of peace and harmony. It reminds me of how he had done ambitious projects and had restored eighty-two temples in a year putting marble over brick. He dedicated its temple to his uncle Julius Caesar whom was murder in 44B.C. And was a Roman Republic that was into the Roman Empire. It still have a meaning, and value because Julius Caesar “changed the nature of the Roman Empire; he had swept away the old, corrupt system of the late Roman republic and had set an example to future Roman emperors as well as other future European leaders to live up to”. I also visited this piece called the Colosseum Theater, which is called the amphitheater the purpose for this was a building that was accommodated for fifty thousand or more people by the Romans. The Colosseum was made out of concrete and the exterior had stones that were covered over it. The meaning and how it relates to the creator emphasizes the supporting structure which had holes in it and what it stands for. I found that there are three architectural columns that separate the arches the Tuscan, Ionic, and the Corinthian these are surface decoration. It was influence by the building was for public entertainment and to watch battles. It remind me of the Reconstruction of an Etruscan temple this art piece was a modification of the Greek it was found in 1833 A.D. the walls have portrait figures painting and corbelled domes, rock cut chambers. This piece still has meaning and value in today culture.
