Cave art  – reflection

The main idea of cave art  is that they used cave art to talk, because they had no language. During painting/drawing they expressed their ideas.  I researched about buffaloes on internet and I got a lots of information about the cave art and buffaloes. So the most easiest one for me was painting my picture of buffaloes. And the most hardest one for me was drawing the buffaloes and writing reflection. For me the most meaningful learning was drawing buffaloes in the cave while pretending an early human. Because it makes me concentrate on that drawing picture and  it was having fun during work. From cave paintings  what I learned was at that time the ancestors discovered cave art/painting for no ones help. This part of sentence make me think the ancestors probably need language. As time process, the language was created.

Voices of the River Valley

For this project, we had to choose an artifact.I choose the great sphinx. When I was reserching, I’ve wonder what thing sphinx are guarding. So I researched. So I got the answer. Well sphinx was guarding tomb of pharaoh or a god and the Khufu king’s pyramid. And sphinx is synthesis creature. Sphinx was synthesis with human+lion+bird. And this sphinx is meaningful to me because this ‘synthesis ‘ come to me interesting.   During research I was able to find many different and interesting fact about it. And I have learned that most of Egyptian believe god. For me that most useful importation about sphinx. It was “sphinx was not just stay there inforont of the pyramid. It was guarding.”
