In the beginning there was landscape. Then, little by little, figures started to appear. Until they managed to establish themselves in a definitive manner, for a long time the figures were in motion. Finally, they laid roots in certain places, made themselves strong and stuck their chest out. They modelled canons and patterns, showing an easy pride in their recently formed identity. In time, they began to feel envious of the canons and patterns of other groups of figures from neighbouring territories. And so, between them all, they invented the depiction of genres and raised borders to delimitate customs and traditions. Art germinated.
