Dog or cat? Savannah animals? Polar bear? Koala?
Which of them do you have the most affinity with?
What is the little animal that looks like you, and what would be your totem?

It is a way of making them exist by putting them in our living rooms.
When we were children, who did not play with farm animals or dinosaur figurines? And then we grow up, we don't play like we used to, they leave our lives, as if we didn't have time to dwell on them, we ignore them, focused by our screens, we don't see the living world around us anymore.
Take a moment to stop, to pass on, to remember that from one end of the earth to the other, these animals are there in their environment.
