When it is difficult for humans to wear jewelry, I'm afraid it's hard to prove it accurately. But it is not hard to assume that humans have been tied to it since humans began to realize that decoration and beautification of themselves.
The most primitive human jewelry can probably be traced back to the distant Stone Age. From collecting information about Paleolithic materials found around the world and from modern primitive tribes, one can see that the early primitive forms of body ornaments were mainly: ornaments, waist ornaments, arms ornaments, wristbands, headgear and so on, and these forms are mainly decorative and waist-based.
They are largely decorated around human reproductive areas, and the reason for this is that, in addition to the ability to support wearing objects in these areas, a large number of studies have shown that this option has another purpose. The color and pattern of animals is also a kind of body ornaments, natural body ornaments, male headgear, accessories, chest ornaments, tail ornaments and so on often in the breeding season is regular changes and display, and these decorations are quite effective in attracting the opposite sex, a large number of biological materials to confirm that the beautiful decoration of animals in the process of sexual selection has a great advantage.
Human tattoo is a similar form of body decoration, human decorative is the animal natural decoration of the extension of the qualitative change. The earliest human ornaments found in the late Paleolithic era around the world, whether animal teeth, feathers, or beads, have a very striking feature: smooth, regular, compact and beautiful. This characteristic further explains the important psychological motivation of the cosmetic makeup, self-took pleasure and the attraction of the opposite sex produced by the body ornaments. Therefore, it is very scientific to derive the origin psychology of body decoration from the aesthetic sense of physiological instinct.
And by this origin motivation evolved from the "human beautification " function is the most primitive and fundamental function of jewelry. In the course of the origin and development of jewelry, there are two other important reasons, one is the motivation of religious function, the other is the motivation of social function, and these two kinds of motivation are based on the motivation of physiological instinct, on the basis of the development and evolution. Religion originates from the witchcraft of prehistoric human beings, while the religious motivation of the development of body decoration is gradually formed in the witchcraft activities of prehistoric human beings and under the guidance of this kind of witchcraft thought and ingrained in people's thought.
Primitive humans in the course of labor practice, gradually to the nature of some of the materials closely related to their lives such as plant fruit, seeds, animal feathers, teeth, bones and stone (jade) material to produce a hazy mystical view, they even as their own witchcraft activities in the object of worship, to give the mysterious power. If they hang the fruit or seeds of a plant on motherhood in order to pray for the reproduction of their children, and the fur, teeth, and bones of the hunting animals are hung and attached to the success of the hunt and their own peace; the worship of the Stone (jade) material is derived from the primitive man's deep feelings for the stone tools, which are slightly glossy and colourful Is regarded as a gift to them by some mysterious master in their mind, they are careful to collect and protect, and in this process, and gradually enrich the connotation of this natural worship, the original Enlightenment thought of Chinese jade culture is derived from this. In the various cultures of the Stone Age in China, Jade has always been regarded as a kind of natural worship with rich spirituality, which is widely used in witchcraft rituals. And for prehistoric people to carry, a decoration as a beautification of their own, but also as a kind of evil to avoid the disaster, survive mascot. In the ancient Western civilization, the familiarity of colored gemstones was so long that they were also endowed with some mysterious religious force in the process of being familiar and used, and the ancient Babylonian state prayed for some mysterious force before the Emerald was offered to the goddess 6,000 years ago, and the Hyland Gem was regarded as the essence of the sea, To ask the sea god to bless the safety of navigation or fishing.
