In today's world of advanced science and technology, we still greatly value our artists such as musicians, painters and writers. What can arts tell us about life that science and technology cannot?

At present, it is sometimes believed that technological and scientific developments have tremendously benefited
people
’s lives in many ways,
however
, a huge contribution of artists is
also
undeniable.
First
,
this
essay will discuss artworks as a cultural legacy, and
secondly
, will analyze the emotional influence of
art
on
people
, that
science
and technology could not give. The primary advantage of works of artists over
science
is that
art
preserves and reflects the culture and legacy of a certain nation. The reason for
this
is that masterpieces can represent and pass along the actual unique character and traditions of the country through the means of drawings, sculptures, and literature to future generations.
As a result
, over centuries
people
could learn more about life in the past by reading novels and poems, visiting museums, whereas
science
may not reflect the lifestyle and heritage. A prime example is the book ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’, which tells readers a true story about a secret and forbidden world in Japan in the past, which probably nobody would know if
this
book was not written. Yet another point to consider is the ability of
art
to foster physical, mental, and emotional health, aiding the recovery process and contributing to well-being.
This
is because artworks can make us smile or cry, love and hate, sometimes it could only mean, which can inspire or support a person in a challenging situation.
Hence
, creative
art
might help
people
to express emotions, process complex feelings, find relief, and treat some issues like depression, anxiety.
For example
, during the war
people
were morally exhausted, they did not have the force to fight and even live,
however
,
art
gave them confidence, the atmosphere of love, and warmth. Soldiers song military songs about the motherland, home, and love and it helped them to overcome these feelings of fear and pain. In conclusion, arts are of great significance when it comes to saving traditions and heritage, and
secondly
, it gives emotional support to
people
, an aspect which most
science
and technology fail to do.
