War and Wrestling

Here is Amy’s blog assignment on the topic of war and wrestling.

Edouard Detaille The Dream
Paris, Musée d’Orsay
I think that this picture is very terrible for me. This picture appears sad with no one alive. And you can see that back of the sky just like doomsday. This picture is depicts of a group of people that sacrificed themselves for the war, and was painted to respect and to celebrate the glorious lives vanquished.

I think that these people are great.

Paris, Musée d’Orsay

I think that this picture is really violent. However, at that time wrestling was very prevalent in the society.
And you can see that there are two men wrestling while a group of viewers watch. At the same time, wrestling have other means: courage and represents a level playing field.

Paris, Musée d’Orsay

I think that this picture is really funny unlike the last one that looks more violent. Similarly, you can see two men are wrestling and a group of people are watching from the back. And the two men look like brothers. I feel that this picture does have a war like competition.

We can in these three pictures that wrestling is no longer symbol of courage and competition. Instead, the sport is a symbol of violence, and entertainment. Although war is now rare, but there are still many assaults.
