Musical Animals (illustrations) Page 1
Hello friends, Samm Bennett here. Humans are most likely the only creatures on this planet who employ instruments to make music with, but throughout history they have been known to depict, in drawings and paintings, cartoons, animation and more, animals of all kinds playing musical instruments. I find this phenomenon interesting, so I've collected these images here in hope that you may find them interesting and fun to view as well. They come from all countries and all eras. This page, featuring hundreds of illustrations, is now complete. The ever-expanding gallery continues, however, with Page 2, which may be found HERE.
I know, I know, a banana's not an animal. Had to include this here, though.
That frog and those mice are playing THEMSELVES!
OK, well, these aren't animals, I know, but any cactus that can play a musical instrument deserves to be here, I think.
True, these aren't animals playing instruments. They're instruments playing themselves. But a frog is watching, so it belongs here...
