Monuments “Panathenaic Procession” and “Imperial Procession”

Compare two monuments “Panathenaic procession, Parthenon” and “Imperial Procession, Ara Pacis Augustae”.

Identify what we see in each fragment and explain how it fits each monument’s whole décor. Differentiate between ideal and historical (or real) representations of each. Consider the meaning of the whole narrative and what it means for the people viewing it. Characterize the art elements such as (3-d) forms, their volume and texture, and design principles such as tension, symmetry, and emphasis. Mention technical details, like carving techniques and the peculiarities of the structures which these reliefs decorated.
