If you're not in room 214, then you're not doing it right lol
After going around Rome and taking in so much. I have found my favorite piece of art. It was hard to make the decision with so much wonderful art I saw today, like the statue of hades with Aphrodite and his 3 headed dog. It was so life like because of how the the sculpture was molded where hades was grabbing her leg and it actually was made to look remarkably real. Also to the comparison of Raphael work and berninis. Seeing them in picture are great, but when you are present right in front of them. I just don't know what to say. It's so overwhelming. To the point, my favorite was the altarolo conrilievi di storie della vita du Gesù made by Matthias Wallbaum. He was breathe taking how he could sculpt this wonderful price with so much detail with so little room. This piece is filled Angels, gladiators, priest, popes, saints, dragons, and to finish it off at the top is Jesus crucified. Such an astonishing asymmetrical piece. If you have not seen it. Look it up, I promise it's worth it.
After watching his video I realized that he mostly recorded religious things. One of my favorite things he showed the viewers was the foot print of the devil and the hand print of Jesus. Many people would walk up and place their foot on the foot print and many people would place their hands and crosses on the hand print of Jesus hoping for a blessing. I believe he made this video to show is most of the interactable pieces that we could see and show our respects to. His audience beings stay religious showing the audience all these wonderful religious pieces that people could interact with and experience things that they haven't done so before. His video is inviting like a promotion to go to these places. It lures us into it and wants us and allows us to go to it, around it, and interact with it. His work is very affective in how he creates a lure to the audience.

His work seems to be made of gold. It gives me the sense that it is trying to give me a message with the letters engraved on the pieces. I would really like to figure out what those letters mean.
9. Mark Manders
He tends to remake human body parts. In one of his pieces, he makes a woman like figure trying to balance her self on the edge of a table. Giving balance to the composition.
10. Carol Rama
The material she uses seems to look vintage or old. The color gives it a look like it was created a while back. These pieces contrast from other art pieces because of its rarity.

The sounds don't really work for the composition because the sound doesnt pertain or have anything to do with the work.
