The definition of the word art originates from the Latin word ars or artem, which means skill, craft, or work of art, among other similar descriptions.1 Throughout history, art has been molded by different definitions and defined by people's perceptions. Oxford languages defines art as "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power." No matter what definition is given, art becomes a universal language that touches on the most profound aspects of being human. Art represents a connection to the past and future. It is evidence of the presence of human beings in a specific location and will continue to be used as evidence for generations to come. Every piece of art is a small window into people's ways of life from different periods of time.
