Commentary: I chose this photo for commentary because the author uses their talent
to communicate to the viewer through art. This art symbolizes to the viewer that
reading a book allows one to use their mind and imagination, but watching TV is an
alternative and less beneficial way for them to be entertained. This imagery also
contains the artists personal opinions, another reason it functions as commentary.
Word count: 66
Worship/Ritual: I chose this cloth painting for worship/ritual because it enhances
religious contemplation within the Buddhist community. It depicts a visual of
Amoghasiddhi, one of the five Transcendent Buddhas, as the central and dominant
figure with many other figures and symbols relating to the culture. There was
obviously a lot of detail and work put into it, showing the artwork is precious. Word
Count: 62

Commemoration: I chose this piece of art for commemoration because it aids in

remembering The Stonewall Brigade where the 29th Infantry Division assaulted
Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. It also honors patriotic actions and demonstrates the
hardship and suffering on that day. It focuses on real people and a real event in
history that is considered important to be remembered in the future. Word Count: 63

Persuasion: I chose this piece of art for persuasion because the artist is trying to urge
the viewers to send food to soldiers, telling them that if they do so, the soldiers will
win the war. The artwork is urging and somewhat guilting the viewers to do
something they may not otherwise do. Word Count: 52
Self-Expression: I chose this photo for self-expression, because it depicts the authors
personality and feelings on depression; this photo makes me think the author has
dealt with depression themselves and are showing how it feels in art. This piece also
stirs up emotion and uses color versus black and white to show the mask those with
depression often wear to mask their pain. Word Count: 62
