The civilizations of the ancient Egyptians, ancient Greeks, and ancient Romans each had different conventions regarding the representation of the human form. This assignment requires you to choose one example each from any two of these ancient civilizations (for example, one example from the ancient Greeks and one example from the ancient Romans), and compare and contrast their representation of the human form. As such, your assignment will address two examples in total. In order to learn more about the examples you have chosen, you are required to conduct some research (see section below titled “Research and Resources”).
⦁ Clearly identify the two examples you have chosen (i.e., title, art era, size, medium (i.e., marble, stones etc.), and subject matter) and include an image of each.
⦁ Describe how they are representative of their respective civilizations (i.e., focus on the conventions regarding the representation of the human form).
⦁ Compare and contrast your two examples (i.e., at the level of meaning).
⦁ Briefly discuss the contribution each has made to the history of art.
The discussion must be in your own words and should not include any quotations longer than a few words in length. You must include a minimum of three citations in your discussion (in order to demonstrate your research) and an APA formatted reference list at the end (before starting your research, see the section below titled “Research and Resources”).

Research and Finding Sources: Important: You should use your textbook for information and at least one external resource (but no more than three). Please note that any other external source has to be a legitimate academic or artistic resource (e.g. art textbooks, art gallery websites). You are not to use Wikipedia, blogs, or commercial or tourism and/or random websites for your information (although Wikipedia is good for finding images). As such, be sure to choose your source material carefully. All information sources drawn upon must be credited at the very end of your assignment. If you are not sure about a source, feel free to get in touch and I will let you know.
