All Creatures Great & Small: Animals in Art
Andrew Jones AuctionsTOP RATED
All Creatures Great and Small: Animals in the Arts auction encompasses all manner of animal depiction ? furniture, objects, fine art and even jewelry. Representations of animals in the arts can be traced back to the first recorded cave painting, of a bull, from 40,000 years ago, found in Borneo. Animals tell stories, convey status, are used as symbols and represent the supernatural. Today an appreciation of animal depictions in two- and three-dimensional art forms has become a deeper consideration of the human impact on nature. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to two local animal charities.
