It is said: The 'good artist' "copies" and the 'great artist' "steals".
The good artist "copies"(imitates), the great artist "steals"(is inspired by) but the 'Timeless Artist' is the one who is copied and who inspires.
I'm writing this because to my annoyance my Dark Prince Chair was imitated. Poorly ...and no credit given, of course.
