Monumental Architecture. What does monumental architecture imply about the cultural values and the socio-economic-political organization of the society that created it?
Do a bit of Internet research on religious or secular monuments, statues, and architectural wonders in your city, state, country, or internationally. Choose a monument (or set of monuments), describe its main features, discuss any symbolism it has, and analyze the messages it sends to its intended audience(s). Provide a link to an image of the monument itself for the rest of us to see.
Bring in what you have read on leadership and political and religious organization in band, tribes, and states up to now in developing your answer. Build on the ideas and terminology in the text and your own ideas to support your claims. Your initial response should be at least 150 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
