Art is an amalgamation of the artist and his creation and a blossoming of the soul. Art gives a concrete shape to one's feelings and imagination hence it is life. Preservations of arts and artefacts is yet another art at an elevated plane. Art bridges the gap between matter and sprit. It is the realization of the maxim : I am one, I recreate into man.
