Lion As Pet In 1955

If you think that having an exotic pet is something from this modern time period, then think again.
These days there are plenty of people which have lion pets or are very close to these wild animals that they seem them as family.

But there was a man called Charles Edward Hipp, who back in 1955 adopted a lion cub named Blondie from the Dallas Zoo. Luckily a photographer called Joe Scherschel has captured those moments to show to the world…

The social dog of Keith Haring

pisa keith The social dog of Keith Haring

 

A few days ago, silosperroshablaran enjoyed reading an entertaining post of Professor Moriarty, blogger of Las Mil Vidas (LMVs) on Keith Haring and his artistic ability to blend the pop with the primitive and involve in his work, at the same time,  toWarhol, the photographer Mapplethorpe and the actress Grace Jones. What led us to realize that we shared a fascination with this pop art graffiti artist for whom the dog represented in his work one of the most important icons and revolutionaries, as a social and protest.

So today we have the special collaboration of Moriarty, talking about the Keith Haring´s work and his social dog. Here you have his post:

keith haring 360x458 The social dog of Keith Haring

Keith Haring (1958-1990) at first drew on black panels that were used to cover old advertisements in the subway in New York , and did so anonymously and compulsive , we could say that is an ancestor of Bansky as ” visible author ” in the ” Street Art ” .

But soon it became a public figure since his message about ” democratize art ” , quickly noticed the ” art scene of the time.”
Early resorted to images of dogs barking , sometimes as a metaphor for the protest that people should do on the socioeconomic situation of the moment, and at other times as a symbol of the authoritarian and oppressive . Many times beside his famous ” Radiant Baby ” , a symbol of human potential .

“We decided that we loved you ,
which is pretty funny the first day that you meet someone .
My guide and protector,
my eyes and ears .
Never subtle to show their praise.
I never lie ,
and that’s why I love him , I’m sure “

Keith Haring : ” Dogs”

Elephant versus Hippo

1146 Elephant versus Hippo

Wildlife photographer Rian van Schalkwyk captured the spectacular scene as he watched the animals grazing at a safari park in Namibia. They say a mother will do anything for her child – even if it means putting herself in harm’s way. This fully-grown hippo was flipped several feet into the air as she stood her ground against an aggressive elephant bull, giving her calf time to scamper to safety. Amazingly, the mother emerged relatively unscathed from the attack, apparently suffering nothing worse than a little gash on the side of her body and a rather bruised ego. The scene was captured by wildlife photographer Rian van Schalkwyk, 40, at the Erindi Private Game Reserve in Windhoek, Namibia. (Photos by Rian van Schalkwyk/Barcroft Media)

Smartest dog in the world posing for Delidesign xmas gingerbread

The shop for designer gingerbread located in Vienna/Austria called  Delidesign presents wonderful pictures with Betsy, the smartest dog in the world.
Betsy was featured on the cover of the March 2008 edition of National Geographic and was the star in a BBC documentation.

Betsy has at the moment a vocabulary of more than 600 words, which rivals that of the great apes, in terms of intelligence and lateral thinking.

She is not only very intelligent and beautiful, she is also a dog of taste. She agreed immediately when we asked her to act as a model with our gingerbreads. She loves the designs and the taste of our high quality products and we spent some terriffic hours together in the studio.  And we can tell you a little secret – she will surprise her two-legged family with our extraordinary knucklebone-collection for christmas.

You can find more information about her at wikipedia or if you google her.
