This writing is from a mediæval copy of The Metamorphoses, a long poem composed by the Ancient Roman poet Ovid.

We then talked a bit about the new project, and I gave you some time to continue brainstorming.  Your homework is to choose a culture and an artefact for your project.  (You can still change, but you need to have an initial idea.)

This statue shows a wide range of influences. Buddhism comes from India, but the statue itself is from Afghanistan. It also shows influences from Greek culture (especially in the hair), because Afghanistan was once part of the empire of Alexander the Great.
