The amount of growth artistically is monumental during the dark ages. I suppose during the most mundane lowly times we reach deeper inside our own creativity, maybe that’s to credit here. I appreciate the expansion and development of geometric design as an aesthetic quality. We have seen it in times before, but during this time it seems to be a rock solid stand alone, like in the hinged clasp of the Sutton Hoo burial. The art of this time seems to revolve more so on aesthetic beauty and “prettiness” rather than sending messages. Truly a time of art growth in my eye.
