Dear followers and friends, I’ve never felt myself any special defensor of animals, but today I want to appeal your attention.
Please browse to the third picture, the simian of the drawing by Hendrick Goltzius tied with a chain at its neck, and now please look at the gaze of this creature and you will understand that it’s supplicating mercy from humans.
Let me suggest a book, and by the by, I think this had to be obligatory to discuss at the schools. This is ‘The Lives of Animals’ by J.M. Coetzee.
Coetzee’s work debates the establishing of morality and appeals to the ethics with a so interesting and amazing way, sometimes like a novel and sometimes immersed in the world of philosophy.
The colorful and lovely first sketch by Franz Marc is dedicated to a very cherished friend of mine: Sara P. Lorenzo. An spanish psychologist woman and in this case another defensor of animals, particularly admirer of wolves. She always knows to teach something with her speciality. Here is the access to her blog:
Thanks so much for your visit, and enjoy the pictures!
