Zoomorphic motifs are found in many areas all over the world and are very old. Depicting horses, cats, birds, wolves, and bears in the Ukrainian culture is known from the dawn of times recalling to the Scythians.
They can be realistic or possess mythological whimsical features. The tradition of animalistic home décor has survived till nowadays and may practically fit any style contributing warmness to it.
It can be traced in jewelry, décor items and souvenirs like statuettes, animal succulent planters, clocks, nursery nightlights, textile prints, pottery and of course various lovely toys.
If you prefer true-to-life images, we have something for you as well. Animal shaped pillows decorated with real-life photos will become an interesting accent in your interior. They will give you a comfortable leisure time or sweet dreams. Just choose your favourite buddy which suits your life perception most of all or simply because you like it. Maybe, it resembles your own pet or will give you an idea to have one!
Don’t forget that a single item may be too bright in your room, being thus a way too much, so it is better to have several ones to make a necessary balance.
