(KG) A visit to the North Carolina Museum of Art (2/4)

Finding geometric designs in this mosaic.
Ms. Maples, our kindergarten teacher, reinforces the topic by reminding the students how they made a mosaic pumpkin by using small pieces of paper.

Learning that the sarcophagus was the final resting place for mummies.
Student comment: "I know what a mummy is! It is wrapped in toilet paper!"

From the Egyptian sarcophagus to the Mexican goddess.
Discussion about the missing head of the snake.

Example of an African Headdress in the shape of a fish.
Discussing about dancing while wearing this heavy Headdress.

From the African mask to Rodin's sculpture.
