PIERRE PAYSAGERE

Pictorial stones such as the paesina above and the agate of Pyrrhus described by Pliny the Elder (but never seen by anyone), hidden faces in the clouds (a result of magical thinking), the nests of bower birds (animal art), may seem to disrupt the consensus on the nature of art as being man-made and artificial, in reality it’s another case of anthropocentrism. Paesine[1] photo by Bruno Cupillard, sourced here[2]. Tip of the hat to Roger Caillois.
