THE MUSEUM OF ORIGINS OF MAN'S WEBSITE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST TEN YEARS
The Museum of the Origins of Man, founded in 1999, this year celebrates its first ten years.
The number of its visitors, from all over the world, is constantly increasing.
That's why we decided to renovate it, which hasn't happened since 2002.
As is known to who is following us, this web site exhibits Paleolithic art, with a focus on the sculpture of the lower and middle Paleolithic, and also post-Paleolithic art, having affinities with this Paleolithic art, for a demonstration about continuity in the spiritual tradition, and also for a more exact interpretation.
The renewal, which will take place gradually over about three months, has the following objectives:
1) to highlight the contemporary origins of Western Paleolithic art (Europe and Africa) and Eastern Paleolithic art (Far East Asia);
2) to expose more accessible concepts to people who do not fully know the disciplines related to this subject, as the Palethnology, the Paleoanthropology or Human Paleontology, the history of the ancient art and the Ethnology;
3) to analyze the evolution of the beauty of the Paleolithic art with scientific method through the evolution of the styles of art, since, although the Paleolithic sculpture seems of rough workmanship, it follows the same rules of evolution of beauty of the post-Paleolithic art and of the contemporary art.
