Sample Answer for cue card an art exhibition you recently saw
Sample Answer (an art exhibition you recently saw):
When I was a little girl, I went to a museum near my home that was exhibiting life-size wax sculptures.
It was in a large room in the museum. The wax figures showed people from different occupations and different poses. Each looked so real that it almost seemed as if a real person was actually standing there and staying perfectly still. For the first half-hour when I was in the room, I was sure that one of the figures would begin to move, and that I would finally prove that they were really just people. The skill of the sculptor was amazing in how each one was perfectly made to exhibit the human body’s texture, posture and size.
I was especially amazed at the wax figure of the cowboy, it seemed that he came right out of an old western movie with his cowboy pants, gun and spurred boots. There was also the figure of a woman at a beach, with a swimsuit, towel, sunglasses and surfboard. There was a policeman, his hand held out to stop traffic with a whistle in his mouth. There was a mechanic, with his hand resting on the hood of a car that he had just fixed and the illusion of grease smudges all over his hands, face and clothes.
As a young girl, I was amazed at how someone could make a statue look so real.
