art and humanity

Art is a fundamental part of human expression; from earliest times, humans have communicated through some form of artistic expression. In homeopathy, it is the expression of the vital force – the life force – which points to both what is to be cured and what will cure. So for early humans 40,000 years ago, the expression of their art often was about what they feared and what they identified with, sometimes in the same image.

Löwenmensch – a lion-headed figurine found in Germany and dating to the Upper Paleolithic. (about 40,000 BCE)

17000 years ago this image was made in the Lascaux Caves in France. We can only speculate about its purpose but what is clear is that the same human concerns were shown by people then as those expressed by Picasso in his Guernica painting from the 20th Century. Maybe these are the artists of their day in both cases. But both are chanelling human expression-which we all do in a homeopathic conversation.
