Animals feature in Renaissance Art heavily. Mainly to serve as metaphors and portray hidden messages. Many animals portrayed contradictory meanings and served to show the feelings of the artist. Many well known artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and often placed animal imagery within his artwork.

There are much less standard animals, as well, in Renaissance art. The hermit St Jerome was shown with a tame lion. Hans Holbein's Picture of a Woman with a Squirrel as well as a Starling reveals an actual Tudor female presenting with her pet squirrel on her arm, consuming a nut. It gets on a small lead that she holds in between finger and also thumb, while a bird sets down on a branch behind her.

While you may not envision such a grand pose with your own pet being so easy to pull off at Paw and Glory we can create the perfect pet portrait for you. Head to the themes page and start choosing your very own custom pet portrait.
