    Art Essay By Hill Uzunlar The body has been used as a sign or symbol in art for centuries. The body was used to symbolize perfection in ancient Greece, and in Egypt, to give a precise image for the God of the After-life.

  • Sculpture Of Hermes

    Sculpture has been a very important part of art history throughout thousands of years. For the past few months I have viewed many different kinds of sculpture, including Greek archaic sculptures, Greek classical sculptures, Greek Hellenistic sculptures and Roman sculptures. All of the sculptures that I have seen and analyzed have very interesting characteristics, but the one that I have analyzed most recently was the most fascinating. Hermes carrying the infant Dionysos, by the artist Praxiteles...
  • Only Avenue For People
    404 words
    I do not agree with Gastil that pornography affects creativity and diminishes humanity. He argues that looking a naked body reminds us of our treasured ape image. He tries to state that the human body is something that makes us revert back to animal instincts, thus creating a violent and sex crazed society. I disagree; the human body does not cause regression in evolution, if clothing was not around and all people were naked then humans would not become sex crazed at the site of naked body. If p...
  • Perfect Balance Of Mind And Body

    Golden Age Greek Criticism of Henry Moores Reclining Woman Both the shape and body of the Reclining Woman sculpture totally tear down our standards as Golden Age Greeks. Not at all can I make out whom this sculptor is representing. Sure I can make out the basic female figure. However the head is way too small in proportion the rest of the body. Maybe Henry Moore has not yet finished this piece. Did he make a mistake in the development of the chest area This could be the case. If still this is a ...

  • Kids Watch Porn
    706 words
    Do you use Playboy or Playgirl magazine to actually read? Probably not! You look at it for private personal reasons. Should woman be glorified by showing their naked bodies? I don't think so. Woman showing their nude bodies and moaning during sex on a pornographic film are not glorifying themselves. The following reasons are why I believe porno is not an art. First, kids should have nothing to do with it. Second, it definitely degrades women and finally it promotes an unhealthy environment for p...
  • Splendor Of Their Naked Forms
    281 words
    Upon viewing Thomas Eakins' "The Swimming Hole", I find that I am clearly able to see the words of Walt Whitman's Section 11 of Song Of Myself as if the language of the poem literally brushed the paint onto the canvas. This beautiful piece of art is exactly the visual picture one gets when reading the poem about the "woman" watching the beautiful, naked, young men frolic in and around the swimming hole. Both Eakins and Whitman were lovers of the human body, mutually appreciating the woman's form...
