IELTS CUE CARD – Describe a work of art you saw
Describe a work of art that you saw
You should say:
– when you first saw this work of art
– where you saw it
– what it looked like
– and explain your feelings about it.
Art expresses the best things in life- simple and sweet, complicated and unknown. Today I’m going to talk about a newly unveiled local piece of art. I had the pleasure of coming across this masterpiece last week while going to the market- I just saw it in passing but that didn’t cease to amaze me.
It’s a magnificent statue of a great Indian ruler, Maharana Pratap and his loyal horse, Chetak. The king is holding a long spear in his right hand and the reins of the horse in his left hand. The horse has one of his front legs up in the air. The total height of the statue would be around three and a half meters. Craftsmen have used two different types of marbles: pale white for the platform and black for the main figures. The colour combination looks impeccable.
Coming to how feel about this work of art, it’s is an exquisite example of craftsmanship. Sculptors’ attention to detail is praiseworthy. Right from the size of the spear to the hooves, eyes of the horse, every small part of the statue is sculpted carefully. This work of art has increased the beauty of the region. When I look at it, it reminds me of our rich history and culture. We’ve forgotten the sacrifices of our warriors in protecting our nation from foreign powers. Such works can greatly help inculcate a sense of patriotism among young adults and children.
Feel free to call for suggestions and queries.
