Select a work of art in any form (painting, architecture, sculpture, or literature) from one of the following eras: Prehistoric, Ancient Egyptian, or Mesopotamian. Ensure that your choice was created in the time frames identified here. It should not simply be a depiction of something in this time period. For example, St. Patricks Cathedral in New York City may look medieval, but was completed a little over 100 years ago. Similarly, a picture of Socrates painted in the 1800s is not a work of Classical Greek art.
In your initial post, discuss at least two ways in which your selected work of art illustrates or reveals the beliefs, values, or ideas significant to its culture. (What can the work of art tell us about the people who created it and what was important to them?)
