Renaissance Artist HW #5

Donatello is a Renaissance sculptor known for prospective illusions in his sculptures. He has worked with other sculptors to create statues for the church. He worked with the church to create statues of the prophets and to create a monument. His most famous piece is the bronze David. His sculptures were the basis of perspective in the arts.My opinion is that his work is very creative and his sculputures.

Medici Family :)

The Medici Family was a famliy of bankers in the city of Florence.=in Italy during the 14th century,they normal people during the Renaissance.But,they became better bribirng other people,they caused violence,and even death who ever came upon them.One important thing they did was that they would always support artist for example, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Galileo.Now this people were very important artist back then in Florence.These artist had like something because they made more people get involved in more art wich was very nice.The family got popular when the Pope said that the Medici family was the most reliable bank. They earned lots of money and stayed open. The other banks went out of business. They also supported an architecture named Brunelleschi that was thought of as unorthodox. When he started building, people were amazed by his work.My opinion :is that i think they had very great impact in there society.They brought classical architecture back, inspired artists, and they helped create the Renaissance because of what they did. Without the Renaissance, our world would be not that involved in the arts, sciences

Mayans Life

Mayan peasants were not easy. Mayan peasants lived in one-room huts built of interwoven poles covered with dried mud. Their families worked hard, but ceremonies and rituals provided a break from work and a chance to honor important events. Mayan women had to rise before dawn to get the fire burning in the fireplace. With the help of their daughters, Mayan peasants cleaned the corn that had been boiled and left to soak and soften overnight. Then they set to work at the grinding stone, pounding corn into meal.

A big event for Mayan youth was marriage. Girls married when they were as young as 14. Marriages were negotiated by the village's matchmaker. Families had to agree on how much food and clothing would be given to the bride's family. They also had to agree on the number of years a young man would work for his new wife's family. When the home was ready, the villagers put a hut for the couple behind the home of the bride's parents. After the priest blessed the marriage, the villagers celebrated.
