If cultures have perished with time then it was only because their Art, Cuisine, Tradition and Philosophy were either suppressed to extinction or over-written by another to the extent that they were digested.

It is worthy to note that no culture anywhere in the world could ever be destroyed if it could keep intact one or more of its above aspects in their sublime form.

However, since change in environmental, social and political quarters of a culture is inevitable, it so happens that the best of monuments turn to ruins and the most ingenious of art forms and methods are forgotten.

What is not lost however is the glory their presence once exuded which subsequent generations cannot but marvel at when they come across remains of art that is neither extant nor it’s production methods known anymore within their modern circle of talents.

All forms of art anywhere in the world are products of their respective cultures.

Culture creates art and art keeps culture alive.
