Quote from: Aethel on December 07, 2022, 01:16:57 PMWith all that being said, I agree that the designs are too cluttered - there isn't geometric uniformity that one would find analogous in nature, which makes it seem more unnatural. However, take what you will from a "godless heathen" - don't spend time criticizing the art that easily. Stuff like this took a lot of willpower, organization, and grossly underpaid labor, even if it reflects the inherent flawed qualities of human beings, it's a testament to human spirit that we could organize and craft such architecture. We were able, at one point, to love ourselves to the point that we could enshrine images of ourselves and venerate it as beautiful - Saints or idols. That's partly why we produce nothing but filth nowadays - we all are so misanthropic and critical that we don't view the beauty of the human form as worth enshrining.After all, Christ found the human form beautiful enough, fitting enough for God.
