Fine Art Vs. Craft

Fine art and crafts are both pieces of art that can be absolutely beautiful. The difference between them is fine art is like a one shot deal, while crafts can be mass produced. For example Michelangelo's sculpture of David is considered to be fine art. It was produced once as an original piece of work. While on the other hand, the craft side, Michael Kors watches are absolutely stunning, and mass produced. This makes them fall under the category of craft, which I believe is under rated. Many people have made or tried to make duplicates of the statue of David, but it will never be of equal value to the original. This is also a difference. Most fine art is valued at a much higher value because it can not be duplicated, like crafts.
