Ikonografická a štrukturalistická analýza ako dve možné východiská estetickej interpretácie pravekého umenia

Lukáš Makky


The most often and discussed issue in the analysis of prehistoric art is the problem of interpretation and the problem of understanding of prehistoric artistic artifacts. There are a lot of approaches, but the most popular from the aesthetic and artistic point of view is the interpretation of meaning of prehistoric art. In the present paper we would like to discuss the productivity of iconological and structuralism approach, especially in the interpretation of Celtic art from the area of Slovakia (Slovenska Nova Ves) with application on the statue of a boar. The main problem is the existence of Celtic myth in the written form, which allows us to understand mythological meaning, but also confuses us because of the apocryphal characteristics of this “tales”.
