Renaissance Sculptures

Here at Sid's Ancient Museum of Fine Arts you will see many sculptures that are varied in all sorts of size. Many of these sculptures were made from carving, welding, modelling in clay, stone, metal, ceramics and wood. When you come and visit this fine Museum you will quickly find out that stone was used on most if not all sculptures made from the Middle Ages, such as the Statue of David, Moses, Pieta, Leah and many more.

Renaissance Paintings

We also have many cases of painting made from artist back from Ancient time. Back in during the Renaissance, Renaissance art was created parallel with Late Medieval art. Many of the paintings that we have here were made from the one and only Michelangelo, such paintings like the Last Supper are displayed at Sid's Ancient Museum of Fine Arts.

Renaissance Agriculture

Throughout Sid's Museum we stress the importance of farming and how crucial farming really was. Throughout the Middle Ages they realized how much of a impact farming had on their way of living and how much they needed farming to survive. Farming boomed and was improved throughout the years. Two big changes that occurred were the elimination of fallowing and the introduction of cross blowing. This had a big impact on how farming was done from then on.

Renaissance and the Fashion

We have a big range of clothing that men and women wore in the Middle Ages. People dressed according to their class, and what the law told them they could wear. Lower class for men and women were only allowed to wear linen, thin, cool cloth. Most men wore a shirt which stood as a undergarment, over that they wore a doublet which was a fitted jacket worn without any sleeves, some men wore a long doublet but wore a skirt with the jacket. Next was a hose, a hose was for the legs and connected together near the crotch. Now a day we would call them leggings. Wealthier men would wear robes and fur hats or a beret. Most men also then wore back then they would call them ducks bill shoes, which were leather. Middle or High class women wore silk, velvet and satin. Most clothing were gowns and tight fitting near the waste and stomach and then flow like a wedding dress for the bottom half.
