  1. Menstrual taboos are associated with straight line dominant art (38)Gray, J. Patrick - Male security and art style in traditional societies, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This paper suggests that Fischer's (1961) "male security" variable is not adequate. Cross-cultural analyses suggest that male security in the realm of father-son interaction may be more important than male security in the realm of heterosexual interaction in explaining the line shape preference of a society.

  4. ". . . that an abstract preference for curvilinearity or rectilinearity may be manifested both in dwelling shape and in decorative art" (128)Whiting, John W.M. - Inferences from the shape of dwellings, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study examines several correlates of the shape of floor plans of dwellings. Authors find that "whether a culture is settled or nomadic, the form of its family and the presence or absence of status distinctions are related to its house type, and the house types can in turn be inferred from the floor plan." Curvilinear houses are associated with polygyny and nomadism and rectilinear houses are associated with sedentarism, extended families, and status distinctions.

Cross-cultural analyses suggest that male security in the realm of father-son interaction may be more important than male security in the realm of heterosexual interaction in explaining the line shape preference of a society.

  7. ". . . there would be more curved [and complex] designs in polygynous societies and more straight-line designs in monogamous societies" (86)Fischer, J. L. - Art styles as cultural cognitive maps, 1961 - 3 Variables

    This paper tests theory suggesting that art is a form of expressive cultures which ultimately is shaped by the social conditions under which people in a society live. Focuses on social hierarchy and its relationship to art styles.

  8. "Straight lines, representing the male form, as opposed to curved, should be associated with societies which strongly favor male solidarity in residence" (84)Fischer, J. L. - Art styles as cultural cognitive maps, 1961 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests theory suggesting that art is a form of expressive cultures which ultimately is shaped by the social conditions under which people in a society live. Focuses on social hierarchy and its relationship to art styles.

  9. "House ground plans [are] related to relative permanence of settlement pattern; . . . circular ground plans will tend to be associated with relatively impermenent or mobile settlement patterns, rectangular ground plans with more permanent or sedentary community settlement patterns" (7)Robbins, Michael C. - House types and settlement patterns, 1966 - 2 Variables

    This article proposes that ground plans may be used as a criterion for determining the relative permanence of settlement patterns in archaelogical societies. Results suggest that impermanent settlements and small community size are significantly associated with circular ground plans and that permanent settlements with larger community sizes are significantly associated with rectangular ground plans.

  10. Cultures above the median in complexity of art style will score above average in socialization severity; cultures below the median in art complexity will score below average in socialization severity (383).Barry III, Herbert - Relationship between child training and the pictorial arts, 1957 - 2 Variables

    This study tests for a correlation between severity of socialization and style of art among a sample of nonliterate societies. Typical personality is thought to provide an explanation for these linkages.
