I have my own, simple and naive definition of art: any object that transcends its own cultural context and its time, reaching out successfully to the viewer, presenting him or her (or it) with a complex set of emotions, sensual attraction, mystery, or transcendence, is a work of art. Quality criteria depend on the cultural context from which an object comes.
