The existence of art can be a challenge if we were to trace its ultimate beginning.  As long as man has been living, we are certain that man has been living a life full of art ever since.  In his surroundings and in all that he has done, man has either consciously or unconsciously incorporated the principles of art in his daily life.  Even mans early way of life is art in itself.
