I never imagined that the museum trip was going to effect me the way it did Not being in a museum for almost 6 years made me forget how remarkable they can be It was totally unreal to see thousand-year-old artwork art within my reach I am not saying this because I am supposed to like all school trips Instead I was truly amazed and will have to visit the museum again The trip to the Metropolitan museum of art gave me a glimpse at the role of women in the ancient Greek and Chinese societies In Greek art Womens powers are shown to be limited to household matters In many images they are depicted as a sort of labor force mending clothes weaving and spinning wool We see this in numerous art works including the Terracotta lekythos 3311110 If the female functions were to sew all day long then its logical to conclude that they probably did no go out much They can be compared a strict case of a housewife In terracotta hydra 510-500bc the women are shown to gather in a fountain house to chat and fill water I assume that this was one of the few opportunities the women had to leave their quarters In few examples of art beauty and cleanliness are emphasized for Greek women The wife was probably responsible for maintaining her attractiveness for her husband In Terracotta pyxis box from 420-410bc a typical Athenian lady surrounded by her attendants is revealed to be holding a vase for oil in her hands In the ancient times oil was used to remove the dirt from body A proper wife perhaps had to decorate herself with jewelry perfume and makeup upon her husbands arrival home She was probably dedicated to the happiness of her husband This is shown in the Terracotta Jar 061021185 from 420-410bc The setting of the illustration is in a womens home The Women are wearing
