Is this art?


Although honey bees have less than 1 million neurones, they can discriminate between Monet and Picasso paintings according to a study published in the Journal of Comparative Physiology.

Astonishing, but is it science?

Apparently yes, although I think it tells us more about art critics than insects. According to the authors;

Discrimination of artistic styles is not a higher cognitive function that is unique to humans, but simply due to the capacity to extract and categorize the visual characteristics of complex images.

So please bear this in mind before criticising my drawings!
