BEYOND THE LOWER WORLD - beyond archaeological finds: Art conveys knowledge that we can put into words, but art also conveys experience beyond words. When we as viewers are faced with a thousand year old sculpture, we are in the same way in space as the sculptor when the work was created. We passed a "hand's experience," the thousand years are reduced to zero. In a new way can the old come forward and present is given a new light.
