I agree with that, its often what I'm trying to show with my work also modern mans hamfisted attempts to capture the art of bygone civilizations

Art seems to be whatever someone decides it is these days.
Personally I don't consider an un-made bed, or an animal cut in half and pickled 'ART', but that is what we are being told these days.

Equally, people lay out leaves on a stream and call it temporary art, with only a photograph as a record that it existed.

Or perhaps the art is in my appreciating and photographing it?

Art or not, I'd rather a large photo of this on my wall than much 'so called' art.

Is Nature Art ? , I doubt it very much , nature is pretty much an accident in itself , it can be portrayed as art certainly , but as Turner said - sometimes nature needs a little help ,, I don't know exactly how many people there are on this planet - 7 billion or so , but their views are never going to be the same on this subject , take your pick as they say Happy
