Im working on a History exercise and need support.
Question 1Not yet graded / 25 pts
We have spent a fair amount of discussion time on the idea of context, that an art object has a specific relationship with the culture or person that produced it, which is not always reflected in its display as a visual object today. Look at the theme of Food and Shelter and pick three distinct objects from the chapter that demonstrate this idea of context while also illuminating the ideas of the theme itself.
Question 2Not yet graded / 25 pts
Tarot cards have their root in Renaissance Europe and initially had little to do with Mysticism and the Occult. Today we primarily associate them with Fortune Tellers and Card Readers, but originally, they were a card game that used metaphorical imagery about the spiritual ascent of man to higher levels of thought and action. Examine the below image of the Sun card and write an essay on how you think the imagery within it relates to the material we have covered in the course. Think of objects from the book that might relate either visually, thematically or conceptually.
