  The

 will
 consist
 of
 type
 written
 answers
 to
 a
 series
 of
  questions
 (provided
 at
 the
 end
 of
 this
 document)
 that
 are
 designed
 to
 help
 you
 see
  the
 image
 clearly–
 from
 its
 overall
 impression
 on
 you,
 the
 viewer
 to
 the
 smallest
  details;
 to
 connect
 these
 ideas
 together;
 and
 to
 understand
 how
 this
 work
 can
 be
  characterized
 as
 the
 product
 of
 a
 given
 culture.
 
 These
 questions
 are
 designed
 to
  help
 you
 identify
 the
 subject
 matter
 depicted
 (which
 may
 give
 you
 an
 idea
 about
 the
  culture
 that
 produced
 it);
 to
 identify
 the
 stylistic
 elements
 of
 the
 work;
 to
 assign
 an
  approximate
 date
 to
 the
 image
 based
 on
 the
 subject
 depicted,
 the
 compositional
  design
 and
 style
 of
 the
 work,
 and
 the
 materials
 and
 techniques
 employed.
