No, in my book not art. They look like they are manufactured, so the indiviuality and care is gone completely. They are pretty cool things (cards?) but don't strike me as art really.

IIRC they were hand-made individual items in hanging frames.

RE: But is it art?
Quote:When the flush of a new-born sun fell first on Eden's green and gold,
Our father Adam sat under the Tree and scratched with a stick in the mould;
And the first rude sketch that the world had seen was joy to his mighty heart,
Till the Devil whispered behind the leaves, "It's pretty, but is it Art?"
Rudyard Kipling

Oh, I see, so it's very very ENGLISH, then? Outstanding! Thumbsup

Thanks, morondog, never thought to look for the question's origin!

RE: But is it art?
Art is very subjective. I've seen paintings of black dots in the middle of big white canvases hanging in the Smithsonian modern art wing. I wouldn't hang a Picasso on my wall either. I do like the detail in the OP. All art has to do is work.

Good art - is something that someone is willing to pay for.

Great art - is something that's worth stealing.....

Nice, and that right there is what is wrong with our species. Greed. Thank you Gordon Gecko. I'm sure you'll chalk that up to a joke, but considering your positions on other issues, probably is less of a joke than you would like to admit.

Hummmm, religious art the world over is very yucky isn't it?

Performance art is pretty out to lunch. Case in point.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
