3. Art appreciation: In these days it is increasingly rare to find young connoisseurs in art. Ones perspectives will become significantly increased after having studied art forms throughout the ages. We can see why certain cultures adapted in different ways to different stimuli’s. In the Mesopotamian times; many statues were made depicting large women. This was the preference back in those ages, because large women were seen as fertile. Moving forward to the Roman times; one may see how sculpting came about; as well as what it represented. After the Greek times, comes the gothic period. This was a period of time during which the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe were built. Truly; the art of an era is like a timeless manifestation that lives on even as the culture dies off.
