Weekly Writing Challenge #3

An iceberg could be a metaphor for the cultures we have studied this semester. The top part of an iceberg could be the things the recognizable aspect of cultures such as games, sports, language, visual arts, food, and literature. For example, Mayans used to play sports and games in the ball court in the daily life. We can know that they played daily. These cultures are visible and obvious. On the other hand, the hidden part of an iceberg might be the deeper side of cultures such as etiquette, gender roles, religious beliefs or values. These things are less visible than other cultures like literature and sports. In short, the hidden part is the detailed and deeper meaning of the visible parts. Both visible and invisible parts are equally important.
