Ancient Art

Ancient Art.  The term has undeniable connotations: it suggests something beautiful, something rare, something valuable. Occasionally one is given the special pleasure of encountering a given object that is in every way exceptional; one to which all the connotations of beauty, rarity, and value clearly apply. Objects of this sort are not merely the traces of ancient civilizations, they are more monuments telling us what civilization is, to what it can attain, the extent to which the mind of man can express itself with grace and imagination.  Almost always one’s contact with these exceptional antiquities occurs in the great public museums of the world. One usually sees these objects behind the requisite plate glass or roped off from access, and one admires but only from afar. These are not objects to be touched or held.
