If you are someone who is into architecture, Malaysia is a wonderful world for you! Not only will you find breathtaking buildings and structures but also you will appreciate the visual arts, too. But this can only be possible to its detail if you know the Malay shapes and objects to best describe what you see.
Malaysia is home to iconic buildings that are a sight to behold such as the City hall with British-colonial-style architecture in Ipoh, or the Lebuh Acheh Mosque in Penang. Mixing the modern and traditional design, you have the Kota Kinabalu City mosque while for nature lovers, you can find the Batu caves temple in Kuala Lumpur.
In regards to the visual arts of Malays, you can find traditional art forms such as batik, weaving, puppetry, and shadow play as well as more modern forms such as painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography. These art forms reflect the culture, and beliefs of the Malaysian people and can be found in a variety of places such as galleries, museums, and festivals. Learning the names of shapes in Malay can be beneficial in a variety of ways.
All of these are about shapes and objects! Someone draws images on a canvas, and behold – a masterpiece is made! But it starts with a shape and an object.
Classification Of Malay Shapes And Objects
How does learning the name of a shape “bentuk” or description of an object “objek” help? It can help improve your language and communication skills by expanding your vocabulary. As mentioned earlier, it helps to better understand Malaysian history, culture, and the Malay language. You can also better interact and communicate with Malaysian people and understand instructions when working with them.
For younger people, learning shapes help children develop a range of important skills such as spatial awareness, problem-solving, and reasoning. It can also help them understand more complex concepts such as fractions and geometry. They are essential in developing basic drawing and writing skills, for instance, as they are the building blocks of most visual art.
Getting to know the names of shapes and objects is basically getting to know nouns in Malay. Nouns are names of a person, animal place, or object. An example is Aminah, a name of a girl. The difference between a shape and an object is, the shape is the outer lining or boundary of an object. The object itself may be a certain color, texture, and material. But the shape gives knowledge about the form of an object.
