... every cultural product or manifestation has... an objective meaning in that it can be grasped without knowing anything about the "intentional acts" of the individual "author" of the product or manifestation. All we need know is the "system"... in terms of which the data we perceive coalesce into a meaningful entity' Manheim, Karl cited in Mysticism and Architecture, Paden, Roger.  

"It is the artist who is truthful and the photograph that lies." Auguste Rodin
