I like that you brought up that art is not an objective science, but must be studied by historians to figure out what happened and how those people lived. It’s interesting that the heavier end of our human history happened before we came up with the scientific method, but here we are studying poetry from biblical texts and paintings on bowls in order to understand how culture developed over time. I wonder if future historians will look at our art to understand us?
