Animals in Art
from Ancient Egypt to Modern Times
Animals have long been part of the art story. They’ve been portrayed in religious rituals, as mythical creatures, incarnations of gods and goddesses, symbolically in Christian art or simply as pets. Some of the earliest images known are of animals brushed into being on the walls of caves more than 40,000 years ago.
In this 1-hour tour, Diane Beckman will walk us through the symbolic of animals in the art collection of the NC Museum of Art.
