The next piece of artwork that I chose represents art in worship and ritual. This piece is a funerary cone dating back to 675 BC. The purpose of this piece is to serve as an introduction to a grave as well as a brief description of the deceased person. The funerary cone is a ritualistic item that, based on religion, memorialized the dead. A huge part of religion is ritualistic practices. The funerary cone embodies the concept that, after death, we are presented with some sort of ritual to honor our lives. During these rituals, art is used as an avenue for expression of the deceased person's life, making it a near perfect example of art used in rituals and worship.
