Animals as a guide

Animals are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for humans. They represented symbols

in religion and stories and were mysterious appearances. People are able to discover

the powerful qualities animals possess, which has led to the use of animals to help humans

for decades in different ways; as a transporter, guide, producer, therapist, entertainer,

buddy etc. Until this day many animals have been domesticated or kept in captivity.

Humans have largely bent the animal world to their will, such as breeding different races

of a particular species. This leads to the animal losing its original being, in appearance

and behaviour, so that we are no longer able to recognize its purity.

With her animal portraits lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel strives to remind us of the

beauty, spontaneity, emotion and primal power that animals radiate. The animal portraits

playfully invite you to reflect on our relationship with animals and the way we view an animal.

We humans have a major influence on the welfare and the living environment of the animals.

We can still learn a lot about and from animals. Although they have a different language

from us, these universal teachers tell us a lot without words.

As long as we are open to understanding how an animal feels by watching and listening

to its body language, we work on a deeper bond with our fellow earthlings.

The connection and also the distance between humans and animals intrigue

lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel immensely.
