Although there wasn’t as much art as previous wings, I don’t believe the Dark Ages was lacking cultural innovation. There was something unique about the Dark Ages. During this period we saw an increase in the use of animal style, which was not seen in past wings. I believe the main reason for people thinking the Dark Ages lacked innovation was because they focused mainly on religion and not their own culture, however religion was pretty steady over this time period and didn’t change much therefore I believe that was the reason for the lack of diversity of their art.
