Das neue Buch des SPIEGEL-Bestsellerautors Fürsorgliche Eichhörnchen, treu liebende Kolkraben, mitfühlende Waldmäuse und trauernde Hirschkühe – sind das nicht Gefühle, die allein dem Menschen vorbehalten sind? Der passionierte Förster und Bestsellerautor Peter Wohlleben lehrt uns das Staunen über die ungeahnte Gefühlswelt der Tiere. Anhand neuester wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse und anschaulicher Geschichten nimmt er uns mit in eine kaum ergründete Welt: die komplexen Verhaltensweisen der Tiere im Wald und auf dem Hof, ihr emotionales und bewusstes Leben. Und wir begreifen: Tiere sind uns näher, als wir je gedacht hätten. Faszinierend, erhellend, bisweilen unglaublich!

Author: Basil F. Fordham

Publisher: Guild of Master Craftsman Publications Limited

ISBN: 9781861081209

Category: Art

Page: 130

View: 2749

A description of the entire process of recreating animals in three dimensions, from the initial gathering of information to the completion of museum-standard models. The author uses non-technical language to explain all the background needed for a basic understanding of the subject. He examines: the anatomy of tetrapods (four-limbed animals, including birds, mammals and reptiles); the skeletons, joints, muscles, ligaments and organs; the parts which determine the outward shape; how to obtain information from photographs and other sources; the methodological construction of working drawings, which enable accurate results to be obtained; and how to use the drawings to make the model using profile gauges, armatures and maquettes. Five drawing projects are described in detail - a frog, tortoise, pigeon, cat and elephant.
