  1. Cultural Flattening is using indigenous art forms without the cultural reference, elements or rituals. These art forms are reproduced by people who may not be indigenous to the form, or fail to provide the cultural reverences that traditionally would be given. It is soulless art that culturally has no meaning, only the one given to it by the artist. What was once esoteric particular to a culture and at times the epitome of the art form for that culture has now been commodified. An example of this could be the Maori and Polynesian tattoo now seen on a variety of people all over the world. Dick Frizzell has created the art works Mickey to Tiki and Goofey Tiki
