America is Ambitious Michelle Zhang P5

America is not the pioneer in human history, not like Egypt or Islam, who recorded the beginning of human activity, yet America is strong and powerful, young and full of passion, creative and inventive. We have our endeavors and ambitions, opting to demonstrate our strength to the world, roaring for freedom, fighting for a better future . We are not the lions who live their life with satisfaction in zoos or circus, we are the next Lion King.

In the 1765 and 1783, The Great Britain had been controlling the new world for a long time, yet the colonists don't felt lost and disconnected with their mother land. They cannot see the bright future under the control of Britain government, with all these unfair acts passing out, restricting our freedom. There need to be a revolution to be independent, but we are not ready for a war yet many colonists opposed war, it still happened no matter the fact that our weapons and army is weak and lacking. Nevertheless, we the people have the power, Boston Tea party, Boycott, Tart, we tried rose the actions, representing our stand. We started to find ourself and define ourself as an individual but not an accessory. The fire of ambition is lit by this spark of freedom. Under the lead of President Washington, victory set the end of the story.

Industrial revolution

America economy is booming.

We are looking forward something new beyond goods and common items everyone could get. We will not just stay where we are and be satisfy with what we have because we have the ambition to take risks but gain benefits. The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes in the period from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, improved efficiency of water power, the increasing use of steam power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the factory system. Textiles were the dominant industry of the Industrial Revolution in terms of employment, value of output and capital invested; the textile industry was also the first to use modern production methods. Railroads, trains, cars, fossil fuels are pumping both money and power into US, roaring to the world that we are self sufficient and strong, not just some colonist anymore.


In order to furthermore show our pride and power, all these new inventions are not enough. Although economy is booming but it could be better if we can have new goods. Seeing Britain reaching far to other countries, opened the mine of America. America is like a growing little lion that just left it's parents, learned how to run and prey on their own, now it is the time to showcase and experience the preying skills that we had prepared during industrial revolution. We are lending our claws and paws to other countries, such as Africa, Guam and Hawaii, Philipines, Porto Rico. We are capturing them for resources and markets, making more money that we tried for long.


My art work is intended to represent that America is AMBITIOUS. This art work represents the power and ambition that America has in the form of this half metallic eagle. It is standing on the top of the world, opening its beak, wings wide open, demonstrating its power and strength, also showing its desire of being the number 1 on earth. This eagle representation shows the evolution of the development of America, from a native land to colonies, to independent country; from weak to unstoppable. The back ground is meant to represent the colors of American flag and the eagle is America. There are several important symbol that records the history of America which is the wings, the sun, the foot and the earth.

The evolution of the eagle


THE FOOT and broken chain

The eagle had heavy chains on the foot, limiting its freedom. Because of this burden, it breaks the chain and fights for its freedom. The eagle represents America and the chain represents the colonization of England, the blood symbolizes the American revolution, finally breaking away from the Great Britain and earned our independence.This is the seed of America's ambition, is to be independent and self sufficient.


The metallic wings

This eagle has one natural wing and another metallic wing. This wing supported the eagle to stand on the top of the world. This mechanical wing represents the most important time period-- the industrial revolution. Because of this revolution it makes our country stronger, later supporting the imperialism. This shows america's ambition of being in power and the expansion of land and advance technology.



The sun is connected with the moon, representing the existence of both communism and democracy. This represents the cold war and space race, which President Kenny said to" Put a man on the moon." This shows America's ambition to fight in every category and will not accept the fact of being in the 2nd place.



With the help of the powerful mechanic wing, the eagle is able to stand on the top of the world and yell out its sound of success. America uses thew tools designed during industrial revolution and the wealth and prosperity to take over other countries. We conquered Guam, Philippine, Porto Rico and Hawaii.
