The Gift of Art

‘Art is the diverse range of human activity, and resulting product, that involves creative or imaginative talent expressive of technical proficiency, beauty, emotional power, or conceptual basis.’

To have limbs, and specifically, hands, is incredible. Think of what humans have achieved using their bare hands. The greatest of buildings with the most magnificent of architecture, designed and built by hands. The most extraordinary of paintings, the work of Michelangelo in the Sistine chapel. The healing abilities of the Son of God himself, worked through his fingertips.

The gift of art is beautiful. To have the intelligence to create a piece of structure with complex shapes, or paintings, or music, is mere mesmerisation. I suppose we don’t give much thought to the hands, but the hands allow us to produce art. I would imagine that is why we are separate from animals, not necessarily out of the shear fact we have hands, but having the ability to use them. How many dolphins do you see attempting to construct a paper aero plane? How many chimps do you see writing Beethoven and then playing the violin in time?

Do you want to share some of your art? If so, comment down below with where we can all go to find that art. You can post anything from poetry, to stories, to paintings, to photographs and more! There is no limit, and to honour Art, here is the titled poem:

Where art thou?

art in heaven

colours and waters

structures and shapes

giving us the day

full of love and hate 

Thank you for taking the time to read the short post on art. I hope to see some of your work below, if not, then please like and comment regardless if you enjoyed the poem!
