Non-man-made art or natural art[1] refers to art not made by men.

Pictorial stones such as this paesina[2] and the agate of Pyrrhus described by Pliny the Elder (but never seen by anyone); hidden faces in the clouds (a result of magical thinking); the nests of bower birds (animal art), may seem to disrupt the consensus on the nature of art as being man-made and artificial.

In reality it's just a case of anthropocentrism.
