A gallery of ceramic sculpture. It’s rare to feel as if an animal can possess you — inhabit your body, mind and spirit as if it were a new lover exploring all your real and artificial selves. Dress your dogs and cats with as many sweater vests, booties and hats as you want; they’ll never come close to the hybrid human qualities that seductively inhabit the work of Beth Cavener Stichter. This might be, in part, because she views her stone sculptures as portraits — of people she has met briefly in passing or good friends or family. She doubles the uncanny moment by acknowledging that these creatures are self-portraits as well, since the very act of interpreting another’s actions, facial expressions, and intentions says — and betrays — much more about our own fears and desires than the other person. We rarely acknowledge or intellectually wrestle with this flash-fiction judgment that we impose onto friends and strangers alike.

REBLOGGING BECAUSE THIS IS DISGUSTING.
all animals need to be respected, not just mammals.
spread this. now. please.
If you claim to “LOVE ANIMALS” then don’t IGNORE ANIMALS.
An animal does not have a specific classification. Mammals, reptiles, amphibians, sea life; they all fall under the same category, they’re all animals
and they’re all creatures with emotion.
You can’t pick and choose what animals deserve to be supported based on cuteness, although I do think reptiles are gorgeous and are just as cute. They deserve a shit ton more awareness.
Fuck You Anthropocentric Dweebs.
