What If?

I'm fascinated by figure skating, especially pairs.  This genre is one of the few requiring the mastery of both athletic and artistic skills.  Are there others?  None come to mind at the moment.

Take a look at this video of Russia’s Yuko Kavaguti and Alexander Smirnov.

I wonder how the world of visual arts would look today if its painters and sculptors were required to obtain this level of mastery of skills and expressiveness before gaining world wide acclaim.  I just wonder.

Happy Friday.
