Even the neatest between us can consider inept as we fail to determine which mild change or oven burner to show on, or even if to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious'even liberating'book, lies now not in ourselves, yet in product layout that ignores the desires of clients and the rules of cognitive psychology.

On the Cusp of an Era: Art in the Pre-Ku?a?a World (Brill's by Srinivasan, D.M. (ed.) PDF

South Asian spiritual artwork grew to become codified in the course of the Kusana interval (ca. starting of the second to the mid third century). but, to this point, neither the chronology nor nature of Kusana artwork, marked through nice variety, is easily understood.

As most of the animal paintings are in deep caves the artists must have made lamps from hollowed pieces of stone with fat as fuel and dried moss, or something similar, as a wick.

British Museum. AFRICAN TRIBAL SCULPTURE 43 composition. The mask has certain affinities with Cubist work of the twentieth century (Plate 47): in both, details are sharply defined and emphasised as units. There is a balance in the strong projecting forms derived partly from human features and partly from those of a hippopotamus which forms a symmetrical design. The cylinders representing canine teeth are not intended as supports since the sculpture is a cap mask which is worn on top of the head with its face skywards.

There is a fairly widespread belief in a supreme God whose power is so great that in many tribes his name is never mentioned. Most Africans are so awed by the might and remoteness of the supreme God that they make no attempt to have direct contact with him but try to reach him only through lesser gods and spirits. These fall into two main types: gods and spirits representing aspects of nature, and ancestor spirits. The nature gods and spirits have their priests w h o officiate over their rites.
