about this painting:
Friendship worth of admiration
Looking at the wall art paintings, we often see animals on them and dogs, in particular. Symbiotic relationship between dogs and humans have been developing for centuries. It differs from the majority of interspecies relationships. All know about it. This relationship is special in nature. Different species often develop a mutually beneficial relationship from which both sides benefit. Two organisms create these symbiotic relationships, because they are stronger together than separately. Several generations of evolution made them genetically programmed to cooperate. Dogs are called "man's best friend" not without a reason, but this relationship has its own nuance.
How it all started
Dogs are former wolves. Wild, vicious and bloodthirsty. At some point, tens of thousands of years ago, some of the less aggressive wolves decided to stay near the tribes of first humans. These smart wolves realized that they could survive by eating food left by people. They did it successfully for many years. After some time passed, these wolves became closer to humans than they were to their wolf packs. People started using dogs for work, therefore, their appearance had also changed.
Looking at the painting, created by Afremov, we can recognize some traits of former wild animal but these traits are well exploited. People use the dogs to protect their families. We see a faithful dog on the canvas that will decorate your wall perfectly.
