Earth and fire, the foundation of human civilizations, were the elements that brought the most spiritual and vital energy to humanity. Earth and fire, along with water and air, exist in the center of the universe. They are the principles of nature that brought new changes to humans, an existential form which lays the foundation for various phenomena. These essential elements came to fulfill the internal creation and creative needs of human beings, along with the development of the human race; it is not a far-fetched statement to say that these elements became the most essential physical medium of art.
