The Secrets of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Artists have always been entranced by nature and its elements, from the earliest images of the cave paintings to the most modern sculpture of Cloud City, they have observed the world as elemental and meaningful.  The works below are all in the Met in New York City.

Your mission is to find six (or more) of these images and write a journal entry which identifies the work, the artist (if known), its medium and any other information found at the museum.  What element(s) does the work suggest to you?  Include a paragraph in your entry playing with the connection between the image and our readings in class. We will discuss this possible project in class.
