REALISATION: FROM SEEING TO UNDERSTANDING -- THE ORIGINS OF ART. Julian Spalding. Wilmington Square Books, Bitter Lemon Press, London, 2015. 192 pp. 20 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781908524454 In English.
Publisher's description: Our world view has changed from a flat earth under the dome of heaven to a planet spinning in the universe. We perceived the world as a body, like ours, then as a tree, a pyramid, an altar, and finally as a veil which became a window through which we peered only to discover ourselves on a sphere, a bubble which might burst at any moment. Our changing views are interpreted through iconic images of the remote and more recent past: the Venus of Willendorf, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Taj Mahal, the Scream, Sydney Opera House, and other iconic works of art.
