please i want you to comment to these posts:

the similarities between the paleolithic and neolithic art periods are they both use humans as their subjects, but the main difference is that the neolithic artists rarely indicated the gender of their subject. in paleolithic art the gender was usually identified and the subject was usually a female.  another difference between the two art periods is that the paleolitic period figures were depicted nude, while neolithic period figures sometimes had painted clothes. the different lifestyles of the two periods might have had an impact on the depiction of their subjects. paleolithic artists generally lived in rock shelters that had huts near the openings. neolithic artists were beginning to settle into organized communities that were surrounded by cultivated fields, similar to villages that would mimic more of a civilized society today. paleolithic art has heads that are mostly featureless or covered. in the neolithic art example the figure has eyes and a nose and possible what could have once been a mouth. the features of the statue are more prominent in neolithic art. paleolithic art mostly exaggerates the breasts, abdomen and hips of the subject which were generally women. in neolithic art, since the gender is generally not identified, the features are very subtle or in some cases nonexistent.

paleolithic art has a greater focus on women because they are the ones whose bear the children. the women are the people who keep the survival of the human race alive. it is doubted that the statues and figurines from this period depict any greco-roman goddess such as venus, like it was first speculated when these figurines were first found.

  in comparison to the two sculptures, laussel, france and ain ghazal, jordan, both have great meaning for the period in which they were sculpted. the woman holding the bison horn is one of the oldest known relief sculptures in the paleolithic period. the chiseled stone piece shows great detail to the woman’s breast, abdomen and hips. although most are unsure of the meaning behind the exaggerated body parts i would like to believe there was some empowerment of woman able to bear children in that period. the neolithic sculpture made from plaster, standing at almost 4 feet tall has great detail to the eyes, nose and arms. these type of sculptures marked the beginning of monumental sculpture in mesopotamia. both pieces relate in the same manner that they have put much detail into their work and accentuate certain parts of the body.


when it comes to talk about the folkways, i have to say i learned most about the table manners. i was living with my grandmother in thailand, until i come back to china at age 5. i still remember that all my relatives came to my home and had a big meal at that day. chinese foods are always temptingly; i can’t wait to rush to the front of the dining table, sat down, and picked up the chopsticks with a piece of meat in my mouth. when i tried to pick another dish, my aunt ruthlessly hit my hand with a flustered face and i quickly took my hand back. she told me that is a sign of ill breeding. i was very grievance and stood aside to see how the others to do.

with time going by, i learned some table manners in my home. in china, different regions have different table etiquette; i just learn the common manners when we eat foods. at first, we should lead the guest to the seat of honor, and then lead the senior to the seat next to the guest. there a rule is taking the seat from left. don’t eat until everyone is here, and ask the visitor and the elder to move the chopsticks first. what’s more, eating with little noise and movement and do not make a hiccup or a sound like a hiccup. when you leave the feast, you should show your thank to the host, or invite the host to your house hereafter.

these are simple etiquette, chinese cultures are extensive and profound, and we still have lots of need to learn. if you have chance to visit my place, i will show you more cultures and fulkway



folkways referred to the things that we do every day that developed out of custom and tradition, therefore, many people follow most of the folkways most of the time because it help for smoother social interaction. according to sociologist william sumner, a folkway is a behavioral adaptation that developed to make social life possible. folkways are informal, unstated rules that govern society, unlike laws, which are formal written rules, and mores, rules about moral behavior, or taboos, acts which are strictly forbidden.  when i first came to usa, i didn’t know that crossing the line is rude because i came from middle east where no one will line up to ride the bus, so it was normal for me to walk next to others and even we got hurt and injured by pushing to be the first one to ride the bus, therefore, one day while students lined up waiting for the bus, i broke the line. the reactions were really not good. the student was asking me with angry voice and angry look to go back and stand at the end of the line. this was really embarrassing all the students were talking to each other about what i did. since then i learned that never ever break into the line in front of someone. this is extremely rude and disrespectful, they will look like at you as you saying  to everyone else in line “hi everyone, i know you’ve all been waiting patiently in line for a long time, but since my time is more valuable than you time, i’m going to completely disrespect you by cutting in front if you.” so if you want to go in front, you must ask the person and then only go in front and if someone says no, you should respect it and get behind them. no one will be happy you’re cutting the really important to respect other culture folkways even small things. by violating the folkways, you are not breaking the laws but you are being rude and disrespectful to the culture.
