Animal Battle, a gorgeous series of drawings and sculptures, by Maryanna Hoggat.
From the website:
Wooden swords, flowing banners, elaborate costumes and dapper hats decorate handsome beasts of all species as they quietly stand at attention, waiting for a battle to begin.
Animal Battle is a visualization of the internal struggle to bring ideas and dreams to life against our most powerful enemies: Fear and Doubt. The Eyes + Hands army symbolizes our physical self, while Hearts + Stars represents the mental: passion, courage, & imagination. Together they lead Ideas out of our subconscious and protect them on a journey through our mind into Reality.
Crafted with an incredible attention to detail, Animal Battle is a series of illustration and sculpture with a lovely vintage appeal that captivates both grown-ups and children alike.
