My element is iron (Fe), atomic number 26. Iron was discovered in Mesopotamia (Iraq) and Egypt, dating back to about 3000 BC. It had been smelted and used for ceremonial purposes at this time and was way too expensive to be used in everyday life. Iron is mostly known for being used to make steel. But, it is also used to make tools, frying pans, railroad tracks, bolts, horseshoe, and even weapons like guns and knives. The most important thing about iron is that it forms a lot of Earth’s outer and inner core.
I got the idea for my imagery from searching uncommon things iron is used for. A long time ago, the body of cars were actually made from Iron before car designers decided that it was too heavy and resulted to something lighter. If I had to do this differently, I would've actually put the atomic number on my image. I enjoyed printing in general, I feel like if one of our assignments in art didn't include paint, it would beat the purpose of the entire class.
