Evan's World Religions Page







After studying and researching the different types of art of all these religions one can notice some things. At first it seems like these art works have nothing in common but when not just looking at what the paintings are you will be able to notice that they all share some things in common. All of these art works are based on the values and beliefs of the religions.


Some similarities in the pieces are shown in the Jewish and Christian pieces. They both represent the key holy figures in both of the religions as well as major figures and beliefs. Another similarity which may be a stretch would be Temple of the Vampire and Wiccan art works. They both are dark art works. They feel and look dark and leave one wondering what the images really mean.


A big difference in some of the pieces of art would be in the Aboriginal and the Amish pieces. The aboriginal pieces are very ornate and filled with design and color where as the Amish are very simple and use more pastels colors. Another big difference in the figures that the art works depict would be between the Cherokee art pieces and the Wiccan works. The Cherokee show and paint pictures of nature and animals. On the contrary Wiccan pictures and pieces depict gods and goddess's.
