In the 1940s, Haiti was lush, with 60% of its original forest covering the lands and mountainous regions. Haiti is world famous for its distinctive art, notably painting and sculpture. Brilliant colors, naive perspective and sly humor characterize Haitian art. Frequent subjects in Haitian art include big, delectable foods, lush landscapes, market activities, jungle animals. Artists frequently paint in fables. As a result of a deep history and strong African ties, symbols take on great meaning within Haitian society. Haitian culture is a mixture of primarily French, African elements, and native Taíno, with influence from the colonial Spanish. The country's customs essentially are a blend of cultural beliefs that derived from the various ethnic groups that inhabited the island of Hispaniola. In nearly all aspects of modern Haitian society however, the African and European elements dominate.
