Animals

Animal imagery, often with important symbolic associations, is a prominent theme in the art of many ancient cultures. This can be considered testament to the powerful impression that animals have on the human imagination and artistic expression. Many deities, particularly of the earliest civilisations such as Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt, are depicted in zoomorphic form, meaning they were shown as animals, or animal-human hybrids.
