[APA] Arts of Asia

Request: the attached document contains all the required information.
In this assignment, you will write a short paper on two bronze vessels from China. The paper should be 3 to 4 pages long, typed in a 12-point font and double-spaced, with the time of your section at the top of the first page. Your main task is to compare and contrast a pair of objects relying on close observations of their formal features. There should be two main components in your paper. First, you need to articulate the similarities and differences in terms of the objects’ shape, size, proportion of parts to whole, décor, and possible function (2–3 pages). Second, you need to briefly explain the changes you see in the comparison based on what you have learned in lectures and readings (no more than a page). The differences can be the result of changes in the political order, artistic taste, religious beliefs, the economy, cultural interactions with other peoples, and/or technological advances. It is up to you to decide which factors are the most germane to your argument.
