Model Answer 1:

Well, India is a diverse country and has a rich cultural heritage. So, there are many things that are quite spectacular and precious.

Where the artwork/object is?
Here I would like to talk about the object which I find beautiful. The object is an antique handicraft wooden mirror frame.

I vividly remember, on my 18th birthday, I received many presents from my near and dear ones.

On that special occasion of mine, my grandmother gifted me a wooden box. When I opened it, I was bold from the blue because there was an elegant mirror. After receiving that gift, I was on the seventh heaven because that was a precious gift for me.

How it was made?
I don’t exactly know how it was made, because I my grandmother gifted me.

What it looks like?
But I still have that mirror, and I have placed at on the front wall of my room as it is an oval-shaped mirror so it enhances the beauty of my room.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful?
Also, this mirror has a wooden frame which is quite eye-catchy. Even it is stubbed with beautiful stones. Honestly speaking, it seems like art of architecture.

Besides, this mirror is not only an object for me. In fact, its like a blessing of my grandmother. Even, I would love to get it with me whenever I go overseas for my higher education.

As I’m an art enthusiast, I’ve collected many handicraft objects. This is the reason my friends often call me a pack rat. But I think that I know what the precise value of these objects. So I use this mirror daily to see myself and it gives me inner complacency.

Overall, this is the object that I find particularly beautiful, and it is so close to my heart.

Model Answer 2:


  • Art is very difficult to evaluate because it is very subjective.
  • To add to it, I have a very unique taste.
  • Most times, the things that I find things appealing, my friends and family members find ordinary.

Where the artwork/object is?

  • However, recently I bought a Lord Buddha statue for my room and most of my friends also said that it looked amazing.
  • In fact, some of them even asked me where I got it, so they could order one for themselves.
  • I have always been fascinated with Buddhist culture since my youth and so I always wanted to decorate my room with a Buddha statue.
  • A smiling Buddha statue is also supposed to bring luck if given as a present.

What it looks like?

  • In the statue I got, he is also smiling, but at the same time, he is skiing.
  • He is wearing a snow cap, goggles, and a sort of kimono-like dress.
  • His hands are clasped together as if he is in a warrior stance.
  • But his clothes and the smile on his face give him a very funny look.
  • If I had to define the statue, I would say its a smiling warrior monk in the modern world.
  • I just found it so exquisite and unique.
  • As soon as I saw it, I wanted it for my room.
  • In fact, it’s the first piece of art I bought for myself.

How it was made?

  • I don’t exactly know how it was made, because I purchased it from a store and I really didn’t enquire about the making process.
  • But I think it was hand sculpted from stone and then polished because the shop had hand-made Buddhist statues written somewhere.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful?

  • I really think it is the most beautiful thing in my room.
  • I have kept it on the top of my bookshelf as it is directly in front of my room’s main door.


  • So, no one can miss it when they visit my room.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 : Follow up Questions

Here some examples of follow up questions that you may asked during your speaking part 3 by examiner related to cue card “Describe an object you find particularly beautiful (For example, a painting, sculpture, piece of jewellery/furniture, etc.)”.

1. Do you think there are more beautiful things now than the past?
In my personal opinion, traditional art and sculptures are much more beautiful. I think in the past, it was easier for artists to find patrons in the form of kings and nobles and they could focus on their art without any financial worries. However, today it is much harder to earn money as an artist. The art being made today also reflects that – it is done more as a hobby rather than as a profession and the works produced are far behind those of the past.

2. Do you think there are many scenic spots in India or there are many more in other countries?
I think India is one of the most diverse countries. It has everything, mountains, rivers, deserts, and beaches. To add to it, it has one of the richest cultural histories. So, I think it is hard to beat India in this regard. However, India is also one of the most highly populated and polluted countries in the world and because of this, a lot of scenic spots cannot match the pristine and untouched beauty present in some of the rich European and American countries.
