and

Ivory casket of al-Mughira from Cordoba, ca.960 (image 9.10)

A main statement is required, which is a sentence or two describing your ideas about what the potential meaning is/was of the artworks analyzed and how it is manifested stylistically.

To get started with the visual description of the artwork, start by observation first. Describe what you are seeing. Your visual description should be as detailed as possible and include your response to the work.

The subsequent information will be gained from reading the caption, which will/should provide the following basic information:

Artist’s name, if known
Materials
Place of origin
Date of origin

As part of the formal analysis, discuss the reasons why this artwork was made and its meaning.

Base this information on what you have learned in class interpreting it from your critical perspective.
