Why do artsy people love deer? I mean they are pretty alright animals, but I don't see what the fuzz is all about.

what? :P

They are easy to draw/paint/whateva and artsy people like that innocent kind of aura those animals have. Or something like that.

yeah maybe...

Maybe it is what the the fuzz is about.

we have the most fantastic cemetary two blocks from my dorm and there are always deer lounging around there. and i don't find them inspiring at all; i don't see why anyone would even want a deer head on their wall. creepy.

ooh i love cemeteries :)

They are a sign of innocence, a la Bambi, and of awe since they are rarely seen by those that live in the city - artists. :) I don't... care either way. I'm not much of a fine artist though.

Yes, I blame that little bastard Bambi too...

and his dead mother...

kitschy art people love deer.

I agree
and innocent?! that's not what I think when I come across a stag while running on a trail; I pray it won't charge and disembowel me.

mmmmmm....paint-by-numbers deer (almost better than dogs playing poker)
22nd-Mar-2007 09:19 pm (UTC)
hah :P

They make good eating!

! :D

I like them because there's this really spindly elegance about them. Like the shapes their bodies make are incredible, not to mention the intense antlers!

plus this:

p.s. did you hear back from any schools? I keep having dreams about nyu :[

I am not a photographer, but I do LOVE your photo's.
I randomly came across a few of them on raptamakeout and was completely blown away. Your pictures differed from all of the rest in the fact that I could picture myself in Paris, even though I have never been. Your pictures make me want to be there so bad. They are truely amazing and I just wanted to let you know. You probably get that ALL the time, but one more compliment couldn't hurt anything. Haha.

Thank you! I'm really glad you like them ^^

I like them because my grandma had a ceramic collection i used to draw as a child, and i think they must symbolize something, innocence is an obvious one but maybe in some spiritual sense they mean something as well?
22nd-Mar-2007 09:21 pm (UTC)
why is innocence so obvious?
22nd-Mar-2007 09:11 am (UTC)
I have no idea.

My college campus was full of deer... I'd see about 10 a week at least. When I gave tours.. I could always tell the people from Southern California because they would FREAK OUT when they saw deer. It was kind of sad.
22nd-Mar-2007 09:22 pm (UTC)
haha why did they freak out?
22nd-Mar-2007 09:14 am (UTC)
I also don't understand taxidermy. How is the head of a deer on a wall beautiful?

I quote my boss:
"I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her."
22nd-Mar-2007 02:38 pm (UTC)
But if you COULD have your mother's head stuffed and hanging on your wall for your visual enjoyment, wouldn't you?

Just kidding. I have thought the same thing. My father has a deer head, some fish and a bear skin hanging on his wall and he flaps off the same dribble "they are beautiful and I want to enjoy that beauty." Isn't part of their beauty the fact that they are alive? (this might be an unfair assessment, I am a biologist, so I probably appreciate the fact that something is alive more than the average person) The only good part is that after he goes hunting, he has the meat processed into food so at least he doesn't kill these animals as a complete waste (just for their skin/head/etc).


p.s. I love the pic, I watch Futurama almost every day (or at least it plays on my TV, I often just listen to it as I do something else).
