|Overview | Introduction | Myth | Dreams | Spirituality | Summary|
Humans use art to capture the form of ideas about worlds outside of our own. Art is often a vehicle for myth or how we understand and explain concepts of a spirit world. Cultures use iconography to symbolize abstract ideas like dreams, love, power, and emotion, and cultures call on the artist to create them. Art also plays a significant role in ritual and ceremony.
