We’ve loved having images of animals in our homes ever since early humans created cave paintings of the animals they hunted almost 40,000 years ago, and ancient Egyptians depicted gods with animal heads 5000 years ago.
Animal art is perfect for some brilliant prints on canvas in a sophisticated home or a child’s favourite animal in their bedroom – that’s everywhere!
While you look below for DIY canvas art ideas, here are some facts about your favourite animals and pets…
Dogs were probably the first animals to be tamed by humans 10,000 years ago. According to some estimates, almost 40% of homes own at least 1 dog.
Cats have a long relationship with humans from the ancient Egyptians 4000 years ago, they even mummified their cats, and mummified some mice with them for them to eat!
Most wild horses are descended from once-tamed animals that long ago escaped. The only species that is truly wild and has never been domesticated is the Przewalski’s horse, but sadly this horse now only exists in captivity as it has become extinct in the wild.
Fish are a common pet but I think seahorses look great on canvas! Everybody knows that the male seahorses actually give birth, but did you know that seahorses are also monogamous and mate for life? Naww!
Lucky for us chickens aren’t very intelligent animals as there are 6 times as many chickens as people in the world. They do look good in kitchens!
Owls are everywhere these days, on jewellery, bags, harry potter, and even cushions. But did you know a group of owls is called a parliament? Now you do!
Butterflies range in size from 1/8 of an inch up to a huge 12 inches, the fastest butterflies can travel at 37 miles an hour and there are about 24,000 different species!
