Recently, we blogged about Animals In Art, featuring contemporary artworks spotlighting our beloved pets. At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, we know that animals have been revered throughout human history as a source of fascination and inspiration.

Today, we begin a walk through Animals in Ancient Art, featuring works on view at the Chrysler Museum. The Chrysler Museum is free to the public, so grab a friend or loved one and see these amazing works [some estimated at over a thousand years old!] for yourself.

Today’s journey through Animals in Ancient Art begins in the Americas (Mesoamerica). Many of these sculptures are estimated to have been created in the years 100-900 CE [Current Era, aka A.D.], and one may have originated in 100 BCE. The “cat cloth” is estimated to have been created in the years 1100 – 1460 CE. For complete details on the age and origin of each piece, visit the Chrysler Museum.
