History in Art


Ancient Pottery Art

The continent of Antarctica is the only continent on Earth that does not have an easily accessible supply of clay. Deposits of this precious building material of ancient and modern man are buried under tons of ice and snow. Ancient man produced items for their everyday lives out of clay and eventually these became objects of cultural art. Where no clay was available, ancient tribes of men could not build viable cultures. Even today, this last continent is largely uninhabited. It has produced no cultures to create and share art with the rest of the world of man.
