What Does bow Mean
The dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy ( RAE ) recognizes multiple meanings of the term arch , which comes from the Latin word arcus . The first one is used in the field of geometry and refers to a fragment of a curve .
A geometric arc, in this way, is a part of a circle . It can also be said that an arc is a curve that allows two points to be joined. Suppose two segments are drawn from the center of a circle, reaching different points on the edge. The curve fragment formed by the union of these points is an arc.
In sports such as football , hockey and handball , the frame composed of two vertical posts and a horizontal third that joins the other two is called an arch or goal . Players must try to get the ball through the arc to score a goal.
The arches have a net that is responsible for retaining the ball when it has already entered. On the other hand, a line marked on the playing field between the two parallel posts helps the referee to verify whether or not the ball actually entered the goal.
The bow is also the device that allows to tighten a string for the launch of an arrow . The shooter must take the bow and push back the string with the arrow so that, when released, it is thrown with force.
The element of architecture that leaves an open space between two walls or pillars and the musical instrument that has one or two taut strings that vibrate are also called an arch.
Within the architectural field we come across a great variety of types of arches. Specifically, we are referring to the semi-circular, the pointed, the lowered, the flying buttress or the triumphal, among others. Not forgetting the rampant, the lintel, the horseshoe, the tudor or the catenary.
Also within this field we find monuments that bear the term in question in their name. This would be the case, for example, of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
In the same way, it should not be overlooked either that ARCO is the name of one of the most important art appointments in the world. We are referring to the International Contemporary Art Fair, which takes place in Madrid, exactly at IFEMA, and which has been in operation since 1982.
Supporting this type of art, giving visibility to new artists and even promoting collecting are three of the main objectives that this event manages to fulfill, which has become fundamental in the cultural agenda of the Spanish capital.
Likewise, we cannot forget that Arco is also what a Spanish singer and composer is called. Specifically, it is the stage name of Antonio Arco, who was to be the leader of the band El puchero del hortelano. With that name he is now developing his solo professional career, and has managed to place himself at the top of the sales list in Spain with his album entitled "Uno". This album included songs like “A perfect day”, “Castle of cards” or “In the morning and to the face”.
