The Terracotta Army Picture, is one of the most artistic pictures that exists in art galleries. My choice for this picture derives essence from the fact that, the picture arouses many connotations that could paint a detailed description of the past. For instance, the contrast in the background illumination and the shadow cast face is intriguing. One may be quick to wonder what past the army man in the picture is involved in, and what impact it will have in the dark future he faces.
Some may raise questions related to the setting from which the picture is taken, for instance, the roof above the man tells that he is in the underground, this reveals secrecy or the covert nature of the Army man’s purpose. The picture is therefore an epitome of artistic prowess, especially of the pictures that contain loads of concealed information, which is often interwoven with a masterly of skill and passion.
The picture is also famous because of the varied interpretations that scholars make from it, some are guided by questions of motivation and experiences from the artist.
For example, it is tricky to come up with the exact interpretation of the Army man’s facial expression, the emptiness that reflects from this eyes, and his gallant posture that displays some level of achievement or accomplishment. The fact that the place is isolated and probably remotely located from public settings raises a similar effect. It is therefore a good piece of artistic work for use in a guided debate by both art and historic scholars.
