33 Tying it Together: A Review of the Ancient Civilizations

34 Questions to discuss in small groups: 1. What types of media did we focus on today? What types of media were not studied why? 2. Which society had the most abstract art? Which had the most mimetic art? 3. Which image do you think was the most overtly political? How were those politics the same as today? How were they different? 4. Which work was the most religious? When you first saw it, did you think it was a religious piece? What details about the religion did you learn from looking at the art and thinking about its function? 5. Based on what you learned about these cultures through their artwork, who would you go back in time to visit, and why?
