ART HISTORY NO 2 : MESOPOTAMIAN ART ________________________________________ "The art of Mesopotamia has survived in the archaeological record from early hunter-gatherer societies (10th millennium BC) on to the Bronze Age cultures of the Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian and Assyrian empires [...]. Widely considered to be the cradle of civilization, Mesopotamia brought significant cultural developments, including the oldest examples of writing. The art of Mesopotamia rivalled that of Ancient Egypt as the most grand, sophisticated and elaborate in western Eurasia [...]. The main emphasis was on various, very durable, forms of sculpture in stone and clay [...]. Mesopotamian art survives in a number of forms: cylinder seals, relatively small figures in the round, and reliefs of various sizes, including cheap plaques of moulded pottery for the home, some religious and some apparently not. Favourite subjects include deities, alone or with worshippers, and animals in several types of scenes: repeated in rows, single, fighting each other or a human, confronted animals by themselves or flanking a human or god in the Master of Animals motif, or a Tree of Life.

Our beautiful Coptic frog howls at a mysterious Egyptian moon 💫 A little whimsical perhaps, but it’s hard not to be when the stand looks so strong! 🌚🐸 . . . . #antiquities #newyork #gallery #winterantiquesshow2018 #parkavenuearmory #ancientart #rupertwace
A rare lunch out. I look up and there in front of me is a replica of my all-time favorite piece of art on earth: the ancient Greek marble sculpture the “Winged Victory,” aka the Nike of Samothrace. She is the be all, end all for me. No other piece of art compares to it. She makes my day! 🕊🔱 . . . . #wingedvictory #nikeofsamothrace #paris #louvre #art #marble #ancient #ancientart #sculpture

One of my favorite exhibition in 2017: "Treasures from the wreck of the Unbelievable", by Damien Hirst @damienhirst. First big personal exhibition by Hirst in Italy (after the 2004 retrospective at National Archeological Museum of Napoli) divided in the two great locations of Pinault Collection in Venice, assigned together to a single artist for the very first time: Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana, over 5.000 meter. This gigantic project, has been judged too ambitious, expensive, crazy, and that's some of the reasons why I looked forward to visit it, along with my love for Hirst. The idea, realised in many years, sounds weird: the story of the ancient shipwreck of the "Unbelievable" ("Apistos", original ancient Greek name) and the exhibition is composed by its precious load: the majestic treasures collected by the freedman Aulus Calidius Amotan, destined to the legendary temple of Sun God. The whole story is fake, and this is a very contemporary issue, if we consider that today media are responsible for the diffusion of fake news, and the consequent difficulty to distinguish real and fake also for educated people. And one of the most important aim of an artist is to offer people a critical perspective on current times. Most of the pieces of this huge collection, from little manufacturing to big sculptures, are made both in the "original" status (pretending that they come from the ocean floor, covered by coral and mollusks) and the Museum "reconstruction". Pieces are inspired by different periods in history - from Maya to ancient Egypt. But Hirst goes further and you can find some current icons such as Mickey Mouse or Transformers, right next to an ancient Asian sculpture. The exhibition also includes a documentary of the rescue, with real cranes and divers. #damienhirst #hirst #contemporaryart #art #sculpture #ancient #ancientart #exhibition #venice #biennale #biennale2017 #venicebiennale #artgram #instaart #artporn #artpic #artphoto #britishartist #treasure #bestof2017 #welcome2018 #amazingart #fakenews #artecontemporanea #palazzograssi #museum #damienhirsttreasures #unbelievable #whatisreal #pinaultcollection

I thermopolia erano locali molto diffusi al tempo dei Romani, in cui si servivano bevande e cibi caldi. Erano aperti sulla strada, con un bancone in muratura spesso decorato, in cui erano incassati i dolia, le giare che contenevano la merce. #pompei #archeology #thermopolium #fastfood #vesuvio #travel #ancientart #visitpompei
Part of my adventures this last weekend was seeing The Getty Center. They had a special exhibit on Ancient American artifacts and I got to see this book dated at 1542 A.D. It was a codex used to record information for Spain about The New World. Thought it would be a perfect picture for #janphilary 😊 #bookstagram #ancientbook #ancientart #ancientartifact

My plans of an etsy shop are broken because of legal reasons in Germany. There are too many barries and perils I don't want to experience - especially not in financial sector. I want to create art, not business... that's how I feel and think right now. I'm so sorry for the promisses I've made before but I never knew it would be so difficult 🙁. But art is my fun and love and I will continue with this profile and name! 🦂🖤 . . #cavepaintings #caveart #höhlenmalerei #parietal #cavepaint #wisent #buffalo #bison #zubr #żubr #prehistoric #prehistoricart #stoneage #shamanic #shaman #witchy #ancient #ancientsoul #ancientart #artrupestre #pagan #paganart #druid #paintings #iceage #stonepainting #witch #wicca

#specialplaces My archeological passion brought me to explore Pompeii. A tragical eruprion saved its beauty of ancient streets, with a lot of details of everyday life extremely well preserved. This is one of the ancient "inhabitants" of that awesome place that is still there waiting to welcome you. Have you been to the Pompeii or other ancient cities? What is your favourite? #pompei #помпеи #naplesitaly #napoli_naples #myfujilove #статуи #art_photogroup #italy365 #italianphotography #belpaese #archeology #archeological #unusualportraits #archeologicalsite #ancientart #archeolovers #myphotoproject #talking_statues #statues #comeandseeit #italianphotographers #wow_places #фотомир #travelforwonder #историческиеместа #достопримечательности #myfuji #fujifilmxseries #fotografoitalia
