There was a thread on art objects.
But more generally, what sorts of art objects are there?
Wood/bone/stone carving are omnipresent.
Engraving and etching (probably any place with decent metalworking).
All sorts of jewellery.
Anything to do with cloth - probably any place with cloth.
Carpet weaving - at least in Calimshan and on Zakhara.
Stone mosaic - at least in Calimshan.
Stained glass mosaic - in nobles' houses at least in Cormyr (according to Volo's guide). Probably in temples all over Faerun?
Obviously, most types of sculpture and some sort(s) of painting.
Tattoo is probably uneven in spread - we know it's common in Thay, and in specific contexts among the wood elves and on Zakhara. There are few sources on the other places.
Maztica has feather-weaving.
What about drawing? Lead or silverpoint?
People never wonder How the world goes round -Helloween
And even I make no pretense Of having more than common sense -R.W.Wood
It's not good, Eric. It's a gazebo. -Ed Whitchurch
