a little help - perspective and lighting

I got an assignment to do in my photography class.

Description - You are required to initially identify a suitable object or a subject and to photograph this from 5 different viewpoints. You need to be concerned and conscious as to lighting and the effects of the background. The images should be taken at the same focal length, settings so as to show the object or subject in five entirely dissimilar appearances.

I'm thinking of using a statue with candle light. but it's kind of a cliche. any ideas or suggestions?

I know I'm supposed to do this on my own to sharpen my skills. so some hints would do thank you.

A flower/plant/tree at different times of the day and different weather conditions?

a building at different times of the day with the sun hitting it from different angles and you moving round in say opposite angles to where the sun is moving, or a bridge and try to include the different angles of reflections etc

Re: a little help - perspective and lighting

Maybe search the Internet for ideas on photographic illusions - e.g something round like a crystal ball that in some light looks convex and other concave, can be transparent as well as opaque, can magnify...

Re: a little help - perspective and lighting

hmm there's an idea. I can take an still object in five different days, so the light conditions change. and I can take it from different angles too. but to find a such object, I might have to get away from my comfort zone. well, it's worth the trouble in the end I guess. thanks guys.
