Wood-Duck Effigy Bowl

 

 

Hello everyone!

 

Teacher Therese here. I hope everyone is having a great day. Today we are learning about the Wood-Duck Effigy bowl.

Introduction:

An effigy is a statue. This particular relic was found near Moundville, Hale County, Alabama (Middle Mississipian). This dates back to A.D. 1250-1500. This particular bowl was made out of stone.

The bowl dates back about 600 years ago and was made by our Native American ancestors. They lived in the Southeastern part of the United States. Archaeologists found this relic.

What are archaeologists?

Archaeologists are scientists who study human history and prehistory. They excavate sites, analyze the artifacts they find and other remains they may find.

My Answers

 

Questions:

I use bowls for eating soup mostly. I also use bowls for mixing baking ingredients.

What kind of bowls do you use?

I use ceramic bowls, glass bowls, and plastic bowls.

 

Questions About the Bowl in the Image:

How heavy do you think the bowl in the image is?

The bowl is probably very heavy since it is made out of stone.

What could you put into the bowl in the image?

You could put some water into the bowl. I am not sure what the bowl is for, but I think this particular bowl may have been used during ceremonies.

Would it be possible to drink out of this bowl?

Yes, it would be possible to drink out of the bowl, but I think it would be pretty difficult since it might be very heavy.

Could you use this bowl to pour liquids out of?

Yes, you could pour liquids out of the bowl, but because it is pretty solid it might be heavy.

Could you eat with the bowl?

Yes you could eat with the bowl, but it would be pretty tough.

 

Name the Different Part of the Duck’s Body:

Can you find the duck’s wings?

The duck’s wings are etched with black charcoal looking lines.

Can you find the duck’s tail?

The duck tail is at the edge of the bowl on the left hand side of the image.

 

Does This Look Like a Real Duck:

Does the duck on the bowl look like a real duck?

I do not think the duck bowl looks like a real duck, but it looks pretty close to a real duck.

Why or why not does it look like a real duck?

It does not look like a real duck because it does not have properly etched wings.

Which parts of the duck look real and which parts of the duck do not look real?

I think the head of the duck looks pretty real, but the rest of the body is not very artistically developed so it does not look real.

About Decoration:

How would you decorate something if you could not use color?

I think you could carve the object and use etching to decorate an object.

Point to and describe the different kinds of lines on the bowl.

The duck has lines that are carved on the duck’s head and the side of the bowl. There are also lines that are black and look like they were drawn on with charcoal.

 

Here is a short video about archaeology. It is a video I have seen before on Great Courses Plus. The video goes over How Do Archaeologists Decide Where to Dig?

I Made Lip Balms Using the STMT D.I.Y. Tinted Lip Tint Kit

Hello Everyone! I tried the tinted lip tint kit. It was lots of fun.

Check out this STMT Lip Tint kit. This was lots of fun to work with.

Check out my tutorial video.

Why Do I Love to Create Video Tutorials?

I love to create video tutorials because I would like to share what I have learned to my blog viewers. In the past I had always wanted to create my own beauty products, but I did not get a chance to until I got these STMT kits from Target. Once I got the kits creating the beauty products was an easy task. After I got my hands on the kits I decided to film me creating the beauty products. I then turned the video clips into video tutorials so I could show you all how easy it is to make beauty products with the use of the STMT Kits.

What Inspired Me to Create Beauty Products?

I have been inspired by the magazine Willow and Sage. They have the best recipes. I have a few of their magazine issues. I also have used the internet to search new recipes from Willow and Sage and have gotten awesome ideas.

I also often go to the grocery store to check out their beauty products. I love seeing what kind of lip scrubs and soap they have. I have also been frequenting the BABS Bath Shop to check out their products. BABS Bath Shop is located on Main Street in Red Bluff, California.

My Future in the Beauty Industry?

Some day, I hope to be able to sell my beauty products at the Saturday market here in Red Bluff or online. Check out more of my blog posts to see all of the videos tutorials I have created. STMT kits and also the Bramble Berry Kits were the best kits for me to use for creating the products and the video tutorials. You can purchase STMT Kits on Amazon and Bramble Berry Kits can be purchased at BrambleBerry.com.

Why Video Tutorials Are Awesome!

Great for Visual Learners

Video tutorials are great for visual learners. It allows your students to learn using a visual and audio type of learning. Video tutorials are great for teaching students how to create their own beauty products because it allows them to see the ingredients, how to combine them properly, how to mix them, and get the final product ready.

Accessible at Any Time and Students Can Learn On Their Own Pace

Tutorials are great because it allows the students to access them at any time and they can learn on their own pace. They only need WiFi in order to be able to watch the lessons. The key thing I try to do is to make sure my videos are short and to the point. The students can also skip around when learning. For example, they can start with learning about making lip glosses or they can start with making roll on fragrances.

Kits Have All of the Things You Need

The kits have been great for teaching because all of the ingredients are all there and ready in a package. There is no need to go shopping for each ingredient. I think kits allow anyone to be able to get the ingredients at a cheap price. There is no need to order each ingredient online if they are not available in stores.
