Autopsy of the first art (N° 20900)

These objects concentrate a double mystery: their own and that of the men who one day produced them. Philippe Charlier intimately links the two. He sheds light on the human significance of these objects or works by linking them to the great events of life: childbirth, illness, mourning, marriage, sexuality... The great mysteries of twinship, madness or crime are embodied in wood or earth, all materials that men have chosen to model, carve, melt. The first art, henceforth recognized for its beauty, reveals a new depth there: its capacity to represent complex cosmogonies, to reconcile the human ones with their evils, to mark out the way of the life, with its great reference marks that limits the death.
