Cow / Antelope in the Tamed series explores the juxtaposition of serenity and untamed grace. This visual ambigram offers two interconnected worlds, each with its own distinct charm.
In the upper scene, a contented cow lies in the lush grass of a familiar farm landscape, surrounded by rolling meadows. Nearby, a quaint farmhouse with a white picket fence stands amidst the verdant fields, accompanied by the presence of a sturdy tractor. In the distance, tall trees sway gently in the breeze, casting dappled shadows across the serene tableau.
Below, an antelope gracefully bounds across the African savannah, its slender form cutting through the tall grass with effortless agility. Majestic acacia trees dot the horizon, their silhouettes standing in stark contrast against the backdrop of the open sky. In the distance, a shimmering water basin reflects the landscape’s simplicity, while birds soar gracefully overhead, their calls echoing across the vast expanse.
