Africanus Erectus drew a line in the sand with a stick 2.5 million years ago. Man intuitively scribbled impressions on surfaces before he could write.
Murals predate man and were the earliest form of media. They have contributed to the survival of numerous cultures. People have been able to transmit their history and customs to us because of their ability to create pictures that communicate important ideas. They recognized the power of art and felt that huge pictures were holy, demanding the attention of everyone who saw them.
