Take a virtual trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (Metropolitan Museum of Art: Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History). Navigate their site and search for an artifact from their Early Christian/Byzantine collections. Choose an item (or items if you want to explore more than one!), and write a short essay about it. Observe its traits, identify the origin, and interpret its execution and symbolism in regards to the time’s artistic tendencies and religious trends. Illustrate your knowledge of the art by evaluating an artifact of your liking!
