  15. 15. Medieval Art (things to notice) • Look at the people, they all look the same. Close to stick figures. • Their faces are all the same. • The depth perception, there is none. Some of the people and objects look like the are floating. • Linear Perspective, Focus point or vanishing point, there is none. It looks like a bunch of randomly placed objects. • Religion, most medieval art has some sort of religious aspect to it. • The artists normally sign their work to know who’s work it is. In this painting we do not find this.
