Art is a reflection of human emotions. Human emotions are based on the lifestyle, society, profession, natural atmosphere and the fertility of the particular land. Tamil culture speaks of five different landscapes that divide the profession and lifestyle of people, according to the region they live in. Fertile land, mountain, forest, seashore and desert were the five landscapes. Based on these divisions, music and dance were nurtured in these areas.
