The definition and concept of art varies from one point of view to another . It can be explained using an objective approach which explains art in terms of its elements such as color , texture and space or using a subjective approach which explains art in terms of the content and meaning that it convey to the society

Even though art has a wide range of definition and concept , the different products of art or the artworks

are classified into more specific classes . These classes can either be the two dimensional type such as paintings , illustrations , and photographs or the three dimensional type such as sculptures , architectures or dances

In line with this , I would like to make a proposal that deals with an artwork that questions the idea of reproduction , an example of which , is photomontage . In photomontage , different photographs are being combined and edited to make a single composite photo . The question of reproduction here is on the type of artwork that can be produced after doing a photomontage

I am suggesting that a photomontage image of fused reality and religion be combined in for us to make an image of the real world with our religious principles in it . In this type of photomontage , I am thinking of making a photograph that can be produced when I will edit and combine Da Vinci 's Mona Lisa to the painting...
