Lab #2

For this Lab, I examined the following: The false door of Khufu-ankh (Egyptian), The Funerary relief of the Publius Gessius Family (Roman) and The Cuniform record of a lawsuit seal (Etruscan). All three contain both unifying and contrasting aspects that can be said to illustrate their purposes in society. The […]


Lab #1

There are many things that a potential reader might be drawn to when first looking at a book. Sometimes it’s a character that seems mysterious or romantic, in other cases, it might be a delicious looking meal that inspires a chef to buy the cookbook for its entire recipe. This […]
