Going into this group project, we are given a specific time period (my groups being 13th century-Gothic) and individually we came up with ideas of a large "gateway" that'd represent our time period. I focused more on the pointed arches and vaulted ceilings. After collaborating with the group, we decided on a simpler design of a pointed arch.
Researching rituals across the world and individually, I focused on the universal sign of acceptance and respect : a handshake. I started out with the idea of a wooden beam that resembled a peace pole with slots for a glove to be placed in. After finding a beautiful piece of walnut that my father provided, I decided to etch out a place for the glove to be placed on the wood.
