Art, Craft and Archetypes

I was on an Open Studio tour today and enjoyed seeing the work and homes and studios of people I have come to know over the past ten years...
Oh boy, This may be more a book than a blog
I was struck by the attention to technique, detail, control, breadth of knowledge of these painters. There was something Heroic, Apollo-like about the detail and care of these paintings. Indeed, they looked very much like the person, the place the thing.
I'm moved by Saturn, the brooding one; and Hermes, the speedy one who turns things upside down. I like the Trickster who does several things at one: making order and disorder...

Do different archetypes inspire different "art"? Is one really any "better"?
