Have each group discuss how their image relates to the Counter-Reformation, and identify which persuasive strategies the artist used. Invite each group to share their findings with the class.
Ask students to compare and contrast the sculptures and paintings. Discuss how a three-dimensional form could help to communicate a message in ways that cannot be achieved in two dimensions? (For example, most sculptures can be placed on any flat surface so they may be more easily accessed or viewed. Also, sculptures can be more lifelike and viewers may be better able to relate to them.)
