Within certain cultures, art is an intrinsic extension of daily life and ritual. Art is a function. These cultures use art for records of spiritual growth, instruments of magic in religious ceremonies, or markers of the past, present, and future. Of utmost importance is communal preservation with a cosmic respect for all that perceptively defines humans as a significant part of the whole instead of the center. This paper explores spiritual art in Korean, Native American, and Haitian art, in which is found rich visual imagery to be explored.
