Various artists have found interactive ways how to include animals in their project in order to raise awareness over something, or just to depict them as beautiful beings that they are. One of these artists is Flora Borsi. Flora has started a project called Animeyed, where she features animals which she shares one of her eyes with. Flora focuses on the make up and costume to match the animal, which ranges from tiny beetles to rabbits.
Except the make up and special clothing, Borsi finishes her masterpieces with a touch up of photoshop and digital retouching for more dramatic effect, and blend with animals in the scale that she does. Seeing how successful the first project turned out to be, Flora has continued working on Animeyed II. The whole concept of her work is to symbolize the resemblance of animals to humans, bringing attention to the beauty of the animal world, to show the uniqueness of each feature of each species.
Below we have selected some amazing pieces from her work, that really speak up to the project’s concept.
We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.
Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.
However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.
I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.
1. Steve Irwin was a crocodile hunter and an activist for wild animal rights.
When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.
His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
