The relationship between art and anthropology has long been debated. The study of traditional arts and crafts found in various societies has only recently begun in a scientific form. Herta Hazelberg points out that anthropological works have been on display in European museums since the 16th century. Olferta Dapper also studied African literature in the 17th century, Cool Sharp in England, European dance in the early 20th century, and nineteenth-century German "Grimm brothers" in oral literature. The study of human music also began with Theodore Baker's doctoral dissertation on the music of North American wildlife in 1882 at the University of Leipzig. Although such studies have begun in the field of scientific arts in various cultures, anthropologists have largely developed research into the aesthetic side of human culture over the past few decades. Despite this lack of research on folk drama, Melville Herkowitz's 1944 dissertation on "Drama Expression Among Primitive People" is important. In 1956, Professor Ediriweera Sarachchandra published an experimental book (Gami Natakaya) on Sinhala folk drama. Art was first introduced as a feature of human behavior by the American anthropologist Alan B. Mariam. Among the cultural creations of man, art is a strange creation. The reason for the creation of art is that human behavior, which is demonic, has created things that are far removed from what is considered to be works of human literature. Although tools, houses, etc. can be taken as examples, the argument arises as to whether these can not be considered as arts. The importance of art is also in the design. Artistic behavior or behavior is associated with it. Music and social human behavior patterns are inseparable. The purpose of the artist is creation. Art is symbolic. This is because it reflects a reflection of human emotions. Why this image can be applied in an entertaining or cultural sense. Second, art can be symbolic because it expresses meaning. This expression is further clarified by the fact that even a literary essay can be presented in words in the language. Third, art is symbolic because it perfectly reflects certain patterns of social behavior, such as political and economic institutions. Fourth, art is symbolic because it universally expresses the profound process of human thought and behavior, not limited to any one culture. In the past, anthropologists have studied the thighs as a social outcome. Art is a social product, but weird forms of human behavior give rise to the arts, and secondly, human behavior is caused by the notion and thought of what should be appropriate behavior or behavior. "Miriam" has also been shown to affect. Anthropologists' focus on the value of art as a result of human behavior shows that the study of the primitive arts has expanded considerably over the years.
