: Dear Folks,
: I agree with much of what Sophia Gates has to say here, but I do think she missed the ball on a few points.
: 1. Our ability to see the landscape spread out below us from an airplane is a pretty recent development, and probably doesn't figure very strongly in the western artistic tradition.
: 2. Westerners did weave rugs (Spain and France, in particular), and those rugs were no more likely to depict humans than rugs woven in the orient.

Are we sitting in front of computers at the sime time? Whenever I am typing to post my message, you are posting just before me. Now your post changed my idea. But I wonder those Spain and France rugs were mostly copy rugs from eastern rugs as in the case of American Indian rugs as I learned on these boards. If so, thoughts behind on those rugs are eastern thoughts.
