To complete an analysis on this subject, I had to think heavily about the relationship that lions had with people. People’s perceptions of lions have a very strong direct correlation with how lions are portrayed in art, so understanding the relationship between the people and the object (in this case, lions) was very important for my analysis.   In the early portions of the project, my assumption was that because lions are strong, people portrayed them in art as strong. However, as my research progressed, I noticed many other qualities consistently developed in lion-based art, as well, such as bravery, guardianship, loyalty, and peace. Lions were often portrayed as wise, calm creatures when they are typically violent, aggressive animals in the wild. While the relationship between humans and lions in nature could often be violent, the relationship between humans and their perceptions of lions is typically warm and respectful, making the art humans make based on lions very flattering to the lions.   In terms of multi-modality, writing the analysis made me think a lot about how I could best hold a reader’s intrigue and best communicate something to them. I occasionally incorporated a video in areas where I felt a visual representation of something could better communicate the message I was trying to convey.   Whenever I mentioned a specific piece of art I chose to reference an image of the piece in my analysis, as well. I felt as though showing the reader what the pieces...
