Since the earliest cave paintings and carvings, animals have featured in man’s desire to recreate aspects, not only of the world he lives in but also of the ethereal other world. Depictions from ancient civilizations tell the story of living creatures as objects of worship or sacrifice, converging attention on their plight. Early horse paintings typically portray the animal as a means of transportation or livelihood, whereas more modern artwork focuses solely on a particular feature and commonly highlights the animal as the centerpiece. The perfect beauty of the animal’s form or color is often the major inspiration behind the painting.
The sheer and magnificent beauty of animals has inspired many an artist to pick up his brush and attempt to capture the muscular strength or the powdery softness he feels and sees before him. Many paintings of animals fall prey to prominent facets that come to light with an appreciative glance and often exaggerate the detail to relay the artist’s fascination. Cat or tiger paintings, for example, are likely to place an emphasis on the eyes, while elephant wall art would bring out the size of the mammal or the coarse complexity of its skin.
To choose an animal painting for your home or office walls is to make a powerful statement. Wildlife art dominates any atmosphere and appeases any eye. Detailed animal art reflects the creativity and originality of the owner while a landscape piece with animals presents the best of both worlds. In short, you won’t go wrong with an art piece from this selection.
