Whether domestic or wild, tamed or dangerous, animals have exerted a fascination on humans since time immemorial. Their status has developed parallel to their perception: better known through zoology, for some time now they have been regarded as creatures equipped with sensitivity, yet their survival still depends on the good will of humans. Their often naturalised or stylised images on wallpaper as well as in applied arts play with the emotions they evoke: horses and dogs create an atmosphere of trust, birds and insects in lush greenery have a soothing effect whereas wild animals stimulate the imagination by recalling faraway lands.
