" Historic Artistic Traditions Featured At New Site theOrigins "

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (INTERNET WIRE) -- theOrigins.com is the first website devoted to preserving cultural heritage by supporting artistic traditions from around the world. Every art, artifact, or handcrafted native good offered is either a reproduction of a famous work of art or created by artists who use the same techniques as their ancestors. People who have an interest in their cultural heritage can choose from a wide variety of historic treasures making a connection to the spirit of their favorite culture.

“Our mission is to keep the unique spirit of each culture alive by providing historic reproductions and national treasures to an international audience,” says Chuck Craver, CEO and visionary of theOrigins.com. “The international reach of the internet makes it possible to have one source where people from all cultures around the world can honor their cultural heritage.”

The pieces offered in the theOrigins Collection are organized by their culture of origin such as Celtic Origins, Egyptian Origins, African Origins, Cambodian Origins and specialty categories such as Medieval Origins. Available art forms include sculptures, reproduction artifacts, statues, frescos, tapestries, wall plaques, jewelry and many more.

“We provide a great deal of content about the art from each culture, which is something our customers really respond to,” says Lynne Born, Co-Founder and President of Product Development. “People appreciate the story each piece of art tells about their culture.” In addition to the articles on the different art forms, there is more specific information for each individual product, including details about the artist who created it and explanations of related myths or cultural symbols.

An extensive search capability allows the customer to search theOrigins Collection by culture, price, art form and keyword. For example, customers can look for all products related to King Tut, Robin Hood or the Vikings and further limit their search by price to stay within a certain budget. Prices range from as low as $20.00 to several thousands for the reproduction tapestries and full size suits of armor, with half of the pieces priced under $100. Customers include art lovers, collectors, museums, interior decorators, genealogists, travelers and anyone seeking unique gifts or interested in exploring their favorite culture.

Other sections of the site also reflect the theme of preserving cultural heritage. In the 7 Million Wonders of the World section, theOrigins expands on the original 7 Wonders of the Ancient World by presenting a photography exhibition of cultural wonders and sacred places around the world. Photographs representing great achievements and natural wonders from each culture are accompanied by comments describing the art, history, religion and cultural significance of the site. In the World Culture Museum, museums from around the world display artifacts from their collections and include articles about the art form and how the artifact was significant to its society and culture.

Visitors can sign up for theOrigins Newsletter and receive articles about ancient art and artifacts, new archaeological discoveries, museum exhibits, featured artists, updates to the website, and other culturally oriented topics.
