Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“It is interesting to note that in the art of contemporary primitive peoples the aims of the artists are strikingly similar to those of the Paleolithic period. In many cases, the artist is interested in a magical process leading to the success of the hunt. Thus the animal is accurately represented in all of its realistic details. Opposed to this we find that the representation of human beings among primitive peoples is much less naturalistic and in many cases extremely stylized. This we can relate to a fear on the part of the hunter that if he were represented in his actual physical character, he would expose himself – his effigy–to the attacks of his enemies.”

–From Harry Elmer Barnes, “An Intellectual and Cultural History of the Western World” (1937).
