A work of art can be defined as a creation of man as a symbol of beauty or to represent a given concept. Examples of works of
art are sculptures, paintings, poems, architecture, film, music and more.
The artwork is different from the common object. The common object has only one practical and useful role in society and is usually
produced in series by industries. There are artworks that can also have a practical use, but most characteristic of art is the difficulty in
giving it useful attributes.
Many works of art do not qualify and have more than one interpretation.
What is considered as a work of art depends on a cultural concept, history and the very meaning of art, which in general can be understood
as an activity linked to the aesthetic, created by artists through perception, idea, reason and emotion ( states of human consciousness), in
