I found my examples as shown above, but I'm having a hard time with the last part.....an explanation of why the example you provide exemplifies the definition(s) of the word "art."

  • art -

    Here's a good definition of art.

    "Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions."

    I've seen the originals of the first three examples you've listed. The Mona Lisa in the Louvre of Paris, France, arouses curiosity about the source of her enigmatic smile. The David in the Galleria dell'Accademia of Florence, Italy, reminds us of the beauty of the ideal human body. In addition, I marvel at the detail of the precise musculature of this statue. My favorite, though, is the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Its perfect symmetry, seen both up close and at a distance, fills me full of awe.

    I'm sure you can add to my descriptions and then explain your other examples in terms of the definitions of art.
