Idolatry and Art

When people come up with new art forms, the first images that have been produced have been religious symbols and icons. Idolatry has influenced the development of art for centuries and it is something that continues to this day. There are a lot of major religions in the world that do not do idolatry, but they have been influential in art styles still and even to this day. Religion has been a major driving force in the development of art because of the fact that people have such a deep connection to it. It is also something that can be translated into something that encompasses all forms of human experience.

Religion and art have developed together and it still influences art styles and changes, even if we do not realize it. A lot of the inspiration that we can draw would come from cultural phenomena. The two largest and most influential cultures that are around today come from religion and religious ideals. It is something that occurs in almost every civilization and it is something that will continue to guide civilization for years to come. To create art without religion is to create art and culture that is dead. You do not have to believe in it, but you do need to recognize its continued importance to all aspects of culture.
