How Wars And Barbars Influence The Development Of The Culture

This is a little square of the little town known worldwide for it's ceramics. I remembered about this art because we spoke with one of the members of our Archeological Group, how it, art of ceramics, changed in the times that passed from Ancient Greece through Middle Ages till today.

Now, if you want to confront these 2: a vase from Ancient Greece and the second, from Middle Ages, you will understand what I'm speaking about.

What I wanted to say, wars and barbars change the world drastically. And the ceramics is the best example to prove it. Go in an archeological museum and look at the plates etc. The perfection of Ancient Greece vase's decorations and the simple lines of "after the Roman Empire". It is clear that the humanity forgot this art in that period.

The next photos show the modern traditional ceramic's images. This is very advanced form of medieval direction in the development of the decorations.
Interesting is: would you prefere this or Ancient Greece direction? Who knows, maybe it exist somewhere...
