AND CELTIC ART
Слайд 2: Where and when did the Celts live
The Celts lived across most of Europe during the Iron Age. They occupied many parts of central and western Europe, especially what are now Austria, Switzerland, southern France and Spain. Over several years they spread outwards, taking over France and Belgium, and making their way to Britain.
Слайд 3: What did the Celts look like?
In the time of Herodotus, the Greeks easily recognized the Celts by their national characteristics: tall stature, fair skin, blue eyes, blond hair, and developed muscles.
Слайд 4: The life style of the Celts
The Celtic way of life is peaceful and creative work. They had a well developed agriculture. Since ancient times, Celtic tribes have been engaged in growing flax, raising livestock, as well as hunting and fishing. Celtic culture developed due to the mixing of foreign cultures.They invented mills, engaged in blacksmithing, and worked wood. Thanks to the developed metallurgy, they made tools and weapons, but artistic craft has become a main part of Celtic art.
Слайд 5: CELTIC ART
Celtic art is characterized by a large number of complex twisted ornaments. Most of their culture is related to religion and nature. Most often, they made their jewelry from metal or carved from wood. The most famous pattern is the Celtic knot. Celtic art often changed under the influence of other cultures, but many years later the Celts retained their unique style.
Слайд 6: What can we learn from the Celts?
I think that the Celts are a good example of how you can develop by borrowing ideas from other cultures, but still remain your unique culture many years later.
