picture of Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day in America is a national
holiday celebration that dates back in 1621. It is held every November on the
forth Thursday. It was a tradition imported from England by the Plymouth
colonists. In history, what is commonly known as “Thanksgiving Day” today was
the early European Settlers’ celebration following their harvesting the
Americas back in 1621. It was a feast attended by the New England colonists who
had invited Native Americans. The feast took three days. It was in the
tradition of the English people to hold days of prayer to thank God after
winning wars as well as following the end of droughts. In this paint (Ferris,
Jean L. “The First Thanksgiving. 1621.” Wikipedia, circa 1912-1915,
https://en.wikipedia.org /wiki/jean_leon_gerome_ferris), there
is demonstrates that how to celebrate the first Thanksgiving Day, bias of
author about Native American, background of the First Thanksgiving Day, and
hide of truth history.
Firstly, the painting indicates that
different people come to together to celebrate the First Thanksgiving Day. It
is important point that they share the food together, a group of people around
the big table which has a lot of food, such as wine in the flagon, potatoes and
vegetables. A soldier who has a nice smile holds a wooden bowl of food. In
front of soldier is a lady who is sharing a big turkey. In addition, the white
rice on the ground, some food made on the fire. A little cute girl looks on while
eating the food happily. Moreover, some people show a lot of interest on what
is happening, this may indicate that they love what is happening.
On the other hand, we cannot deny that
the author bias about Native American in this picture. Two categories of people
are shown in the painting, one group assumed to be the European settlers
consist of well-dressed people who appear to be more civilized. Because they
eat more food on the table, they talk about the paper, and they have more knowledgeable.
Another group is seated on the ground and what differentiates them from the
civilized group in the way they are dressed. Their dressing is similar to the traditional
Indian dressing. Maybe they are Native American. However they are receiving the
food, and they have some old utensil, such as stick and broadsword.
In addition, the picture that leads audience
to find the truth hidden in history of First Thanksgiving Day. First of all, Women
from the civilized group can be seen serving the Native Americans, something
that indicates that the Native Americans have been invited and are getting
familiarized with the thanksgiving tradition. And it was a time when Native
Americans could not seat on the table together with the civilized group. The
way different groups are dressed within the picture is a clear indication that
it was around the 17th century. Conclusion, the painting show how
the first thanks giving day in America was like. The culture has been carried
out in America up to today and during thanks giving day, friends and families
come together for some special meal.
Finally, the background of the picture is
wonderful, such as happiness atmosphere and attracting vision. The Mr. Ferris’s
picture uses more color that is soft and light, including golden, purple and
blue. The sea and sky seemed to blend, the grey stone house was relieved
against the blue sky, and two green trees are about same height and have many
branches. Everyone’s faces radiant with fulfillment. Some people look like
dance, some people who are watching strange scenery and listening to strange
sounds, and some people are enjoying the delicious food. Moreover, the
environment is very green and there is a river with water flowing. This shows
that it is plenty of food, possibly after a drought.
To sum up, we can know a lot of
information by the Mr. Ferris’s picture, including first Thanksgiving Day, the
author’s bias about Native American, the truth history and the background of
the picture. In the future, Thanksgiving Day not only is a unique national
traditional festival, but also has been increasingly popular in people.
