The freedom of the flying bird and its colorful plumage have inspired the artists for millennia. Even the Egyptians used birds as "winged souls". Horus, the god of the sun, symbolized a hawk.
In the lofty heights of its heavenly kingdom, the bird crosses national borders. From above, he watches over the events on the ground with his keen eye. In many cases, the bird became a heraldic animal. It symbolizes the power of a nation like the American Eagle, the bald eagle, the United States of America. The wings of the birds and the wings of the angels remind one another so much that birds depict the Holy Spirit in religious scenes of the Renaissance in proclamation scenes. The pigeon is a symbol of peace and understanding worldwide.

With the advent of scientific ornithology, the ornithological representations of birds have become more and more detailed and artistic. Artists such as the Germans Johann Conrad Susemihl (1767-1847) and Joseph Wolf (1820-1899) or the American John James Audubon (1785-1851) made extensive pictorial compendia in which they observed the birds, some of which had previously been killed in their living environment showed.
Audubon, who became famous as an "American Ranger," assembled over 400 hand-colored representations of the "Birds of America." The work first appeared in England in 1826 and was enormously successful there.
Joseph Wolf is one of the best-known illustrators of animal pictures of all. On behalf of British ornithologists he made many panels to the "Genera of Birds" (1840), which also served as a template for larger paintings that nature lovers for their private art collections acquired.

His contemporaries flattered Wolf on the assumption that in a past life he must have been a bird himself in order to represent birds so accurately and vividly.
Whether exotic flamingos, hawks, kingfishers, domestic ducks or owls - the grace of the birds remains an almost inexhaustible motive of works of art of all eras.
