about this painting:
Young girls are often compared to birds because they are just as lovely, bright and cheerful. This metaphor is often used by greatest artists and poets but it actually came to literature from traditional folklore.
Associating people with images of animals is very common for different cultures worldwide. For all of them, wild and domestic animals represented different traits of character. The most common are:
- A lion is a symbol of physical power and inner strength. These animals are believed to be “kings of all animals”. People who are associated with lions are very powerful and can be good leaders.
- Have you ever heard an expression “as sly as a fox”? That’s because for centuries people had an opportunity to watch their evasive and cunning nature.
- It seems that cats have always lived with humans. They look very cute but every person who has ever had cats knows – they are not as simple as they seem. Cats always represent magnetic and mysterious people or graceful seductive girls.
- For many cultures an ox is a symbol of persistence and strength. Oxen are not leaders but they know how to work hard. In agriculture these animals are usually used to pull heavy things. In the past they were best helpers for farmers and all those who work on land.
SNOW WHITE MASTERPIECE
This concept inspired a lot of artists to create beautiful canvases. A world-famous artist Leonid Afremov is often greatly inspired by graceful and agile dancers. They impress him with the amount of time and hard work that they invest in what they do. Also, the art of dancing as any other kind of art has a great expressive potential that affects how we feel and can transmit powerful ideas. Being an artist, Afremov understands how hard it is.
On his painting, you can see a graceful classical dancer in a long white dress. Her costume reminds of traditional female clothes of Eastern Europe. In many countries femininity is traditionally embraced and such costumes can be often seen during national holidays.
Her dress is as white as snow on many famous snow paintings by famous artists. Afremov adds a couple of colorful splashes here and there to make it match the background of the paintings, which is pretty colorful.
This painting brings with it a very pleasant and creative atmosphere. It can be a nice addition to almost any design.
