                These

             live inside
             after the
           decay of the

     Since the
sculpture would be
   home to the

           Features were
           very much the
           same on every
           portrait. Do you
           think that the
           Egyptians really all
           looked identical?
 Greek:
Their culture
idealized the
human form
(tried to
make it look
perfect.)
Greek:

Head of
Hermes
Greek: Bronze

What is Your Opinion:
Which do you prefer –
 Portraits that have little expression
         (Egyptian or Greek)
                 OR
   Portraits that show emotion or
             expression?
    (Renaissance /Contemporary)
Why do you think the artists
selected these people as the
 subject of their portraits?
Your Task:
  Think of a person that you PERSONALLY
  KNOW and admire or look up to (your
  hero.)
  Design a portrait of that person -(head and
  shoulders only.)
  Have them showing some type of emotion
  or interesting expression.
  Draw it from the front, back and side
  views.   3-D = 3 Dimensions
