Animals have been depicted in art since prehistoric times, with some of the earliest examples found in the Altamira Caves in Northern Spain, dating back around 65,000 years. Throughout history, animals have played a significant role in various art periods, including Prehistoric Art, Ancient Egyptian Art, Mesopotamian Art, Ancient Near Eastern Art, and Renaissance Art.

In Ancient Near Eastern Art, animals were represented in various forms, such as painted pottery, clay sculptures, carved stone, and precious metal sculptures. These images often evoked divinity, kingship, and the fertility of the natural world. Both naturalistic and abstracted animal portrayals can be found throughout the history of the ancient Near East.

In Mesopotamian Art, animals were depicted in a highly naturalistic manner, indicating that the artists worked from observation. Different eras and Mesopotamian cultures saw different animals depicted more frequently, such as goats, bulls, and lions. Animals were found on wall panels, foundation pegs, ceremonial objects, armor, weapons, sculptures, and luxury items.

Ancient Egyptian Art featured animals as deities, pets, symbols of fertility, or objects of fear, protection, and luck. Animals often had attractive qualities that the ancient Egyptians admired and wanted to emulate, such as strength, the ability to ward off predators, protective nature, nurturing characteristics, and connections to rebirth.

In Renaissance Art, animals were frequently used as emblems or metaphors. Rich with symbolism, images of animals were often based on older symbolism, although these earlier meanings were often altered during the Renaissance to represent contemporary attitudes.

Animal style art is an artistic approach characterized by emphasis on animal motifs and abstract, stylized depictions of animals. This style was prevalent across Eurasia among various nomadic cultures during the Iron Age and Migration Period. The exact origins of animal style art are still debated by scholars, but most evidence points to its beginnings in the steppe cultures of Central Asia.

Earliest Examples and Influences

  • The earliest examples of animal style art date back to the Bronze Age cultures of Siberia, such as the Afanasevo culture (c. 3500-2500 BCE) which produced stylized animal figures and patterns.
  • Stylized animal depictions from the Andronovo culture (c. 2000-900 BCE) in Siberia and Central Asia are considered prototypes of later Scythian animal style.
  • Scythian art from the Altai region (c. 700-300 BCE) is the earliest fully developed animal style, displaying complex compositions of real and mythical creatures.
  • The animal style spread from the Scythians to other nomadic groups, including the Sarmatians, Huns, Avars, and Germanic tribes. Interactions and trade facilitated transmission of styles.
  • Shamanic beliefs and animism among Central Asian nomads contributed to reverence for animals and use of animal imagery.
  • Animal style shows influences from Near Eastern, Anatolian, and Greek art, indicating cultural transmission along trade routes. But the style was transformed to suit the nomadic context.

Distinctive Features

  • Intricate geometric patterns and abstraction of animal forms
  • Focus on predator-prey combat scenes, often depicting felines and ungulates
  • Expressive, dynamic compositions showing animals intertwined and contorted
  • Use of animal parts like heads, horns, wings integrated into decorative motifs
  • Repetition and mirroring of figures creates balanced, rhythmic designs
  • Varied media - metal, jade, stone, wood, textiles; but art of the steppes centered on metalwork
