What IS Anthropomorphic Art?


What is Anthropomorphic Art?


Anthropomorphism or personification is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to other animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as organizations, governments, spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid-1700s. Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

As a literary device, anthropomorphism is strongly associated with art and storytelling where it has ancient roots. Most cultures possess a long-standing fable tradition with anthropomorphised animals as characters that can stand as commonly recognised types of human behavior. In contrast to this, conventional Western science, as well as such religious doctrines as the Christian Great Chain of Being propound the opposite, anthropocentric belief that animals, plants and non-living things, unlike humans, lack spiritual and mental attributes, immortal souls, and anything other than relatively limited awareness.

Geat compitition, and hope to hand something in if i get it done on time.
I have one objection though- " a mother cuddling her young ones or a mother baking the whole family a delicious spring pie! "- you have managed to reduce motherhood to cuddling and baking. baking has no specific connection to motherhood, except the common gender roles on 50's ads showing being perfect mother and wife as the ability to bake and clean. being a mother is a complex experience, filled with frustrations, doubt, tiredness and worry as well as unimaginable joy. baking has no place being one of two examples of 'a mothers love'

KovoWolf Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Professional General Artist
Would be great to receive more entries.

In regards to your other comment. That was just one example out of the handful I gave. In no way was I reducing what a mother is just by those statements; let alone subjecting them to the old '50's' mind set that a woman's role is in the kitchen and no where else. Motherhood can be however you perceive it to be or have experienced both as a mother and as a child. I know plenty of mothers who love to bake. Baking is not a gender specific role. I used some of my own past times and things that I loved to do with not only my mom but my dad as well. Quality time spent together and loving it all the same.

So it's a little outstretched to take it that far out of context and say that this contest is to demoralize mothers by shoving them in the kitchen, slaving away for their families. No where was that implied in the initial statement. Baking does not equate to motherhood but least we not forget the mothers who do enjoy baking and love to do it and pour their heart and soul into, yes, even a pie because that's what gives them joy. Not because "its their role" but because they want to share a passion with you. Teach you her secretes so that one day you can share that same love with your own children, family or friends.

thanks for the quick reply.
I'm sorry if my comment came out a little more blunt than intended. I was not blaming you for seeking to demoralize mothers.
It does stand out thought that you gave two examples for themes in the artwork, where one of the two is baking.
I would like to see more ideas in the description, giving a more well-rounded inspiration for the contest.

again, i come off strongly because it's a subject (gender roles) I am very involved with, Im sure your intentions are benign.

KovoWolf Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
The point of the challenge is to foster creativity and imagination with whatever theme is present. It wouldn't benefit if I have a huge list of examples. Wouldn't the art stem or be souly influenced from those examples rather then evolve from your own feelings about the theme and allow you to grab that very inspiration? Usually the theme for the contest is left to the artist to determine how they see fit to interpret. I love seeing art straight from the imagination :)

And I understand your position but again by no means was that one example out of countless others meant to offend or be taken out of context.

I will keep this in mind for future contests and provide a few more examples rather then a couple. : >

No idea if I will be able to make a short story for this in time. Final exams and projects are coming to my brain's shore like tidal waves. But who knows. Maybe I could whip something up in between stuff or after classes are over.

I really hope literary works are allowed for the June contest. Whatever that one may be about. I have an idea for a story with a summer-ish theme and a new character I would like to try out.
