Week commencing 15th June 2020
Visit British Museum https://britishmuseum.withgoogle.com/
Look at different artefacts from all over the world that span over thousands of years.
I liked 2 items. The first were a pair of ear rings from the 10th Century. They came from Bulgaria thought to have belonged to the Byzantine Empire. When I looked closely at them I could see that they had small birds enamelled on them holding twigs. What I thought was most interesting was that they looked like something someone might wear today.
Perhaps you could design a piece of jewellery based on these or another piece in the museum.
I also liked a sculpture called the Tree of Life. This was from Mozambique and was made using weapons that were handed over to their government after a civil war in their country. I liked the fact that something bad had been made into a beautiful piece of art.
What is bad in our world that could be made into a piece of art? Maybe all the plastic in our oceans?
Could you make a tree of life sculpture out of plastics? Have a look in your recycling and see what you could use.
