Love Styles

by Daniel Mackie February 02, 2017

Which animal is most like you in love?

Love is a many splendored thing, so the song goes. It reminds us that love is very different for each person, and indeed each time you fall in love. Many of the DM Collection animals represent love in their own unique way - but which is closest to your experience of amour?


Enter our Love Print Giveaway and win a print of that design.

 

 The Cat is constantly entranced by the object of its affections. Following them around absentmindedly, catching itself staring at the wonderful being that is its love, and of course, needing lots of nuzzles and hugs. See Daniel's Cat designs.  

 The Dog is loyal to those they love above all else. As pack  animals, the bonds between them are crucial for their survival in  the wild. Pet dogs may have softened around the edges, but  their steadfast, loyal, affectionate nature remains strong. See   Daniel's Dog designs.

 In contrast, the Butterfly is a rather flighty piece! Aesop's fable   the Butterfly and the Rose shows that despite their love, Mr  Butterfly could not remain faithful to just one flower. But then  again, the Rose also had a soft spot for the Bumblebee.... See  Daniel's Butterfly design.  

 Perhaps the Lion is more your style? Fiercely protective of  those in its pride, both male and female lions will fight to the  death if they feel one they love is under threat. Yet, in relaxed  moments they nuzzle and play together, revealing they are a  soft pussycats at heart. See Daniel's Lion design.  

 Or does love make you want to crow from the rooftops like the  Rooster? The bird's pride as he struts the farmyard around like  the lord of the manor is a feeling love can create - just hope the  fox doesn't sneak up on him! See Daniel's Rooster designs.  

 A pair of love birds is perhaps the most clear sign of enduring  love from the animal kingdom, as 90% of bird species are  monogamous, with 'divorce'  rates thought to be lower than  humans! Inseparable, these two  are true soul mates who  delight in each others' company. See  Daniel's Goldfinches  design.

 

Whatever your style in love, it is an uplifting and life enhancing experience at its best. Grab it if you can!
