Like people, humans have been creating representations of animals since the dawn of the drawing stick. In nature, our encounters with animals are typically fleeting, but in art we can hold that image permanently. Many humans are drawn to animals because they seem pure, not bogged down by human trivialities. Pictures of animals, like people, can reflect our own emotions back at us, sometimes evoking new emotions from the ones we’re already feeling. Having art of animals on your walls gives you something to connect to everyday.
