Need an research paper on similarities and differences between the basic art forms of the japanese and the america. Needs to be 7 pages. Please no plagiarism. Resources such as bronze, gold, wood, sand, and stone have been instrumental in shaping objects of art in different regions. The landforms determine the availability of such resources.It is. therefore, possible to compare and contrast the basic features of the art forms of two or more regions. Japan and the Native Americas will form the basis of this essay. The rationale for the selection of Japan and the Native Americas before 1300 is the diversity of their art culture and history. In addition, the two regions are also representative: Japan represents the East while the Native Americas represents the west. It will be interesting to compare and contrast the basic art features of the two diverse regions that lie on the extremes: Japan at the Far East, and native Americas at the west. Another reason for the choice of Japan and native Americas is that the two had no influence on each other before 1300. This. therefore, makes for a strong basis of comparison.First, both Japanese and the Native Americas art forms employ the use of great stone statues. The Todaiji Temple in Nara was a massive stone structure that marked Japanese art before 1300. In the Native Americas, there existed the Colossal Heads of the Olmec Culture in Mexico (Kleiner, 2008). Some of the Colossal Heads are as high as nine feet and weight a massive twenty-eight tons. This means that stone was the preferred medium of art in both Japan and the Native Americas. This implies that stone could have been readily available during that time. It also means that their landforms made stone available. In the case of the Colossal Heads, they used a special type of stone known as basalt. They had to obtain it by quarrying in the nearby Tuxtla Mountains. This was not an easy task considering the enormity of the Colossal Heads. The Japanese and the native Americas could have preferred stone for another reason: posterity. They expected the statues to last for centuries. This is true because stone lasts many years before the vagaries of weather or artificial processes begin to take a toll on them.&nbsp.&nbsp.
