If there's one thing that us human beings like, it's being human.
In fact, we like it so much that we want everything else to be human too. Or at least, more accurately, our socially wired brains are programmed to look for "human" signals everywhere - and get tickled when they find them.
I could wang on about anthropomorphism in product design (think cars, vodka bottles or angle poise lamps) but instead I'm going to share a few examples of anthropomorphism in art that have caught my imagination recently.
For part one, check out these cool photos from Czech artist Vlad Artazov. And just remember the next time you're doing the DIY - nails are people too, yeah?!
