Art is a distinctly human production, and many people consider it the ultimate form of culture
because it can have the quality of pure expression, entirely separate from basic human needs. But
there are anthropologists that actually regard artistic expression as a basic human need, as basic
as food and water. Some art takes the form of material production, and many utilitarian items have
artistic qualities. Other forms of art, such as music or acting, reside in the mind and body and take
expression as performance. The material arts include painting, pottery, sculpture, textiles and
clothing, and cookery. Nonmaterial arts include music, dance, drama and dramatic arts,
storytelling, and written narratives.
In most societies people establish their personal and group identity through such forms of
artistic expression as patterns of dress and body adornment, ceremonial costumes and dances, or
group symbols. Smaller societies also use art as a primary form of storing and reproducing their
culture. Ceremonial dances and performances, for example, commonly tell legends of creation,
stories about ancestors, or moral tales containing instructive lessons.
In large societies, governments may hire artisans to produce works that will support the
political structure. For instance, in the Inca Empire, the elite hired metalworkers and textile makers
to make exclusive gold and silver jewelry or create special clothing and adornments for them.
These royal items displayed insignia that indicated high status.
In present-day large societies, many people produce art for commercial and political purposes
in addition to social, personal, and spiritual reasons. A great number of artists make a living by
working for businesses that use art to advertise commercial products. Most large societies today
also have laws that protect the content of art works such as books, films, songs, dances, and
paintings as intellectual property, which people own and can sell.
