What you are about to see is not a wildlife photography! It’s called “Handimals” – stunning hand painting illusions by Guido Daniele (born 1950), an Italian artist who is behind this incredible collection of hand animals. Born in Soverato, Daniele graduated from Brera School of Arts in 1972, majoring in sculpture and then attended the Tankas school in Dharamsala, India until 1974.
We humans have always had a fascination with the circle. We experience it throughout nature– in the spiral of the Milky Way, the orbiting planets, and the cycles of life itself. As children, we also discover that we can use a crayon to make circular forms on paper; it’s a universal stage of artistic development that every normal child throughout the world experiences. In fact, it is the first major milestone in image-making and for that reason, a child’s circle drawing may be one the earliest representations of the self.
