this is amagical and imaginary creature…something that people think about
-we arecapable of making full images already in the phase where we weren’t evenwriting
-emphasis on female body and reproductiveareas (her hand is pointing towards her vagina)
-her body jumps out at you from thestone, her thighs and belly protruding especially
-red on her chest indicates paint
-also focus on animals
-the clay gives a smoother effect.
-the caves are not open to the public
the deployment of nooks and cranniescreates more drama
-sense of movement in the pic of theHall of the Bulls, rendered in outline, shadowing, and in different colors
-there is familiarity with what theseanimals actually look like, but it’s not an attempt to create a directrepresentation of nature
-the horse looks kind of Chinese
-the symbols near it are also kind ofweird
-the outline of the body…does itreally follow anatomy? Or is it more of an impression we get?
