Introduction

There is no denying this conviction that art plays a vital role in our lives. Being a creative person, I love to get into details of fabulous artwork done by others.

Recently I saw an excellent piece of art, and its looks are etched in my memories.

Where the artwork/object is?

The artwork is inside a temple in the hills of the Himalayas. There is a city named Solan, and the temple is just 10 kilometres from that city.

Inside the temple, there is a statue of Lord Shiva.

How was it made?

Making it was a daunting task for the management team. More than 300 artisans worked tirelessly for 6 months to give it a nice shape. Various types of stones and sand are used to create it.

Moreover, special painters from South India have done the paintwork on it. To give it an enticing look, the architect has used lights in a consummate manner.

What it looks like?

Its looks are amazing. Firstly the artisans have left no stone unturned to give it a nice shape. All the curves on the statue are beautifully decorated.

Moreover, the paint is done perfectly, and the artists have used the right combination of colours.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful.

I find it beautiful for many reasons. First and foremost is its alluring design. On my first visit, I spent 30 minutes watching this beautiful creation.

Secondly, I am a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva, and this piece of art makes me feel as if the god is in front of me.

Introduction

Being a voracious traveller, I have been to many places and pay special attention to wonderful art and craft pieces wherever I go.

One such object caught my attention, and hence it is worth mentioning.

Where the artwork/object is?

It is in Fort Ramgarh, which is a heritage site near Chandigarh. It is a 50-seat dining table. 

How was it made?

The dining table is 100 years old. Luckily I met a local person who provided details regarding how the artisans made this table.

The concerned person told me that the wood was specially imported from Italy, and artists came from the state of Uttar Pradesh for polishing work.

A team of 20 carpenters worked with determination, dedication and discipline for 3 months to create this masterpiece.

The most challenging and time-consuming task was wood cutting because, during that time, electric cutters were not available. So the workers had to toil hard by cutting wood with traditional tools using the power of their hands,

 What it looks like?

The marble pieces are etched on the top of the table, which looks alluring. The table is 100 years old, but the polished work looks modern. There are wooden carvings all around it. And when the lights are on, its looks get enhanced.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful.

I find it beautiful because, for the first time, I saw such a large piece of furniture created articulately.

Secondly, its size and design depict the royal lifestyle kings and emperors used to have.

Introduction

It is irrefutable to say that art plays a pivotal role in our lives. A large number of people thrive primarily on it to earn their livelihood.

Although I have had the opportunity to see numerous artworks, one of them is special, and hence it is worth mentioning.

Where the artwork/object is?

The artwork lies in the historical site named “Bheema Devi Temple“.This place lies in the state of Haryana in India. There is a small town named Pinjore, and this temple is in the heart of the town.

It is in the form of stone carvings where beautiful sculptures are created which look alluring. The whole site falls under the frame of operations of The Archeloighical survey of India.

How was it made?

As it is an ancient site unearthed during an excavation at the end of the 19th century, few details are available regarding how the artists crafted these masterpieces.

However, from a close look, we can ascertain that it is a fine piece of art created by artisans who did their best to give an enticing shape to the rock. The carbon dating shows that different hammers and chisels were utilized to give the desired shape to the rock.

What it looks like?

It looks like a fine piece of art. The artists left no stone unturned to craft the masterpieces by going beyond the conventional domain.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful.

I find it particularly beautiful because carving such fine art without modern machines seems daunting. Moreover, the presentation of artefacts revealed how rich our culture was in the past.

Introduction

Although I have seen innumerable artworks, one of them is special, and hence it is worth mentioning.

Where the artwork/object is? 

The artwork is in Rock Garden in Chandigarh,

How was it made? 

This artwork is in the form of statues. The creator of this garden Late Mr Nek Chand was a philanthropist and a social worker. He has this habit of creating various artefacts using waste products.

What it looks like? 

Although the material used to make this artwork is all waste like broken tiles, fused bulbs etc. But for a first-time visitor, it seems like the artist has made it using new material.

The artwork is in good shape, which shows that the administration is not leaving any stone unturned to keep it spic and span.

Due to the special artwork displayed in Rock Garden, It has become the second most visited public place in India after the Taj Mahal.

Around five thousand people visit this place daily to see and appreciate the artwork.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful.

I find it beautiful because this artwork is beyond the conventional domain. It is the epitome of creativity.

In this modern era, when profit maximization is the aim of most people, this place is setting a good precedent.

We all know that creating artwork with the help of modern equipment has become quite easy. Creating sculptures from waste products is a daunting task in such a scenario.

But the strong will of a person has made it possible.

If we all start taking recycling seriously, this world will become a better place.

Sample Answer 5

Introduction

Among all artworks, I like painting the most. Although I have seen numerous paintings in my life, one of them is special and worth mentioning.

Where the artwork/object is? 

The object is a painting of a stately home in a hill station with a river flowing in the front. It is hung on the main wall of the drawing room of my home.

How was it made? 

Our family went to Manali Hill station two years back to enjoy the summer vacation. There we stayed in a big house near the river. We had a gala time together.

When we returned to our house, we missed the house where we stayed in Manali. The next month my father visited Manali with a painter, showed the house to the painter, and told him to draw that on canvas.

The painter took one month. He used various colours to draw the painting, and due to his determination, dedication and discipline, he created a masterpiece on the canvas.

What it looks like? 

Although it is a painting, it looks like a clicked picture from a distance. Its height is 6ft, and its breadth is 8ft.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful.

I find it beautiful because I feel I am in the arms of nature when I see it. It helps me remind the wonderful time I had in Manali. Moreover, in this modern era where open spaces are on a decline, this picture gives us hope that we can enjoy our life in a serene environment by building a house near a hill station.

Sample Answer 6

Introduction

Being an art lover, I am interested in closely watching and observing fine art pieces. In this modern era, where technology has made inroads in our lives, it is challenging to find real art objects.

Fortunately, I have seen a marvellous piece of art umpteen times.

Where the artwork/object is? 

It is a necklace which is a possession of my mother. My grandmother gave it to her, and for the last 10 generations, it has been with our family and passed on to the seniormost female in the house.

How was it made? 

The age of this necklace is around 300 years. During the 18th century, our forefathers used to travel to Iran for trade; on one of the visits, a family member from our ancestors bought it.

It is made up of 42-carat gold with pearls, emeralds and sapphires.

What it looks like? 

It looks royal. I have been to numerous jewellery shops, but I cannot find such a piece of art. Although it is 300 years old, its design looks contemporary. When someone wears it at night, it looks alluring in the presence of light.

Whosoever sees it asks for its details like quality, price and design etc.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful 

I find it beautiful for many reasons. First and foremost is its design which doesn’t seem to age. Secondly, its sheen is intact despite massive wear and tear.

Lastly, is the effective usage of various stones in it. The workers who made it left no stone unturned to use the pearls judiciously.

Follow up Questions

Here are some examples of follow-up questions that the examiner might ask during your speaking part 3 related to the cue card “Describe an object you find particularly beautiful ( for example, painting, wooden craft, jewellery, furniture, etc.)”.

1. Do you think there are more beautiful things now than in the past? (Answered in a combination of Present and Past tense)

There is no denying this conviction that conventional art and sculptures are more alluring than modern ones. There is no escaping that in the past, it was feasible for artists to find sponsors in the form of kings and emperors, and they could focus excessively on their art without thinking about the financial crunch. However, these days it is much more challenging to earn a livelihood as an artist. The modern artwork showcases that the artists pursue it as a hobby than as a means to earn bread and butter for themselves, and the works produced are not as touching as that of the past.

2. Do you think there are many scenic spots in India or are there many more in other countries? (Answered in Present tense)

It is a gospel truth that India possesses diverse cultures and traditions. It has marvellous geography in the forms of hills, rivers, oceans, canals, deserts, and beaches. Moreover, it has one of the richest cultural heritages. So, I think India has much to offer scenic spots. On the other hand, India is the 2nd most populated nation in the world, and many scenic spots are in dire straits. They cannot match the cleanliness and natural beauty in some affluent European and American nations.

3. Do you like paintings? (Answered in Present tense)

Yes, I like paintings. Since childhood, I have been interested in art, and whenever there is an art exhibition in my city, I visit without default.

4. What are some famous paintings that you like? (Answered in Present tense)

The famous paintings I like are “Mona Lisa” and “Last Supper” by Leonardo Da Vinci. In both paintings, he used colour combination with perfection. Moreover, his style of using a brush with different strokes was beyond the conventional domain. That is why these two paintings are a masterpiece.

5. Why the younger generation is less interested in skills such as painting?

In the current times, technology has made inroads into our lives. Due to this, there is a paradigm shift in how people entertain themselves.

Painting is a pursuit that requires dogged determination. At the same time, today’s young generation runs after instant gratification. In such a scenario, an activity like painting requires a boatload of patience, and time doesn’t appeal much to numerous young people.

They thrive primarily on electronic gadgets and social media to pass their leisure time. Due to this reason, the trend of learning painting as a skill is on a continuous decline.
