How Art Made the World

How Art Made the World

I discovered this show the other day while flipping through channels and I was so excited.  My DVR is now recording every episode.  Check out the website, watch some images, and set your DVR!

The few minutes I caught was about Egyptian obsession with orderliness in their art.  They found a grid that creates a standardized system of drawing the human figure so that their style of drawing people would be maintained for centures.  Why?  Well, I guess I will have to watch the whole episode (More Human Than Human, the title of which makes me think of the White Zombie song).
