African Animals and Symbols ……… and some Emoticons added for fun here and there!




A beautiful and majestic land, rich with lush plant-life and magnificent animals.

African animals play a huge part in African culture. Their symbolism can be found throughout countless pieces of art and historical accouterments. Each animal has it’s own specific meaning and signifies a certain quality or characteristic such as courage, pride and valor.

In fact, several African tribes believe wearing animal carvings on their masks will improve their communication with animal spirits in the desert or wooded areas.
