    American Abstraction: Early 20th Century

    473 words, 2 pages

    740 words, 3 pages

    For this essay I have chosen two sculptures, each from a different culture that I am very fond of, to compare and contrast.

However, the statue was discovered buried with him inside his tomb. “It is believed to ha
