สถาบันวัฒนธรรมของ Google นำเอาศิลปวัตถุจำนวนหลายล้านชิ้นจากพาร์ทเนอร์จำนวนมากมารวมไว้ด้วยกันในพิพิธภัณฑ์เสมือน พร้อมด้วยเรื่องราวมากมายที่จะทำให้ศิลปวัตถุเหล่านี้มีชีวิตชีวาขึ้นมา
Q: What inner expression do those hands show? A moral man confronting the tough choices of the office?
The eyes reveal all .
The man conquered the Hill. Q: An executive who boasts of his accomplishment with the first branch? Note the Capitol Building in the lower-left corner. He didn't enjoy being a president.
An athletic frame which holds a pipe: The President might have been more thoughtful than publicly recognized.
I remember Reagan highlighting McKinley as a favorite. Maybe those determined lips are indicators. In Winchester, VA, I came upon a plaque where he was raised a mason; the building is a bank now.
That hand holding a globe! This man is ready to conquer the world. Those ships he sent on a world tour make sense.
Abe didn't chose this portrait: to me, the artist showcases thinking....no, listening skills and determination.
What are those buttons on the table? A president who showcases the US flag AND the Seal: under siege during his tenure, he reinforces his standing as a final salvo? [I'm still standing]. His tie leads to the eagle - I believe that's the nickname his guards rendered during the first campaign: "Eagle"
This portrait is nothing like Grant; we know better .
Q: Is it obvious? Sunrise in America - the location of the light hints of a "new dawn in America" as vocalized in his first Inaugural. I don't remember seeing Reagan with a watch.
Our First Agora.
One hand on sword, the other reaching out in friendship welcoming a guest: the US seal symbolizes just as much with the Eagle. The table showcases how much work he undertook to start the project of republic in a monarchial convention.
The painting in the background is I believe: Abe congregating with Sherman and Grant on a river boat before movements against Richmond. Q: The globe related the President 's similar decision point but different scale? Or the world is behind him in his endeavors? I'm curious what that letter holds. Maybe this: "Iraq's full and unconditional compliance" rings with Grant's ultimatum. More at http://tmblr.co/ZI1-WxEwLqPj
