Artwork can portray the ideals and perceptions of a society. As you begin looking at this collection, you can pay attention to the wildlife to notice how the painter thinks of Mother Nature. Initially, nature is completely full of pain and fear, beauty is terrifying, and nature is somewhat revered for it's strength. Eventually, you will see when ideas of humanity and nature begin to mesh together. Animals and people alike can be dangerous and mourn a death. As people grow bolder, they begin to own pets and appear to be friends with humanity. In the end, human beings find their place at the top of the food chain. Though people may have pets, they still do not respect or love animals the way they would another person.
