In the early sixteenth century, the discovery of the "new world" was still the main topic of interest, particularly the rumored riches. The city-state of Venice, which was once a flourishing power, had been suffering a decline, partly due to a plague that had ravaged the country, yet mainly because of increasing pressure from rival city-states during what would become known as the Italian Wars. In an attempt to curb this, increase their influence, and gain prosperity through rumored gold, the monarchs of Venice hired a group of willing explorers, one among them who was named Cristoforo DeGeusto, to travel to this new land.

So, DA, I'm asking you, HOW can limiting the Searches results to only one thousand pieces help us have a better view of said artworks?
This what $Heidi wrote at %hq to explain the launching of this feature.
"These changes open the door to new possibilities of improving search that we are exploring today. Some basic improvements that are in the works include matching more results, having better results rise to the top, and more ways to browse other than just by category and keyword.
We know that for some people this change is a trade-off. DeviantART has so much great stuff (not that we're biased or anything) that t
