From the very earlierst of times, frames around the landscape whether it is our current invisible borders between countries, or a simple wooden frames around our favorite picture, it tells of how we as humans, have had the need to distinguish us from them, self from others in the name of nationality, identity, nativity, indigenousness, etc.
