Animal Planet: Pluto by Shivita Animal Planet: Pluto by Shivita

Please do not edit, reproduce or redistribute




Nineth picture of my old series "Animal planet", which was about representing the solar system as fantastic animals.

I made this before we knew how Pluto's surface really looked like. It turned out to be quite different from this at the end, but at the time, this is all we had.
Pluto is a dwarf planet that was considered a planet for a long time, so it seemed fair enough to include it. In mythology, Pluto is the god of the underworld, and Charon (the moon) is it's ferryman. Bats and bugs are not exactly the most loved creatures on Earth and most of them prefer the dark over the light. So I thought...Pluto is in some of the farest, darkest and coldest places of this solar system...but it has a moon, who could be a firefly to help it see better and not being so alone.

Made in Photoshop CS



Other in the series:

Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars
Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune
Sun

It reminds me the Aesop's fable bout a bat. In his story, as you know, the bat was outcasted because it could not join in any groups of birds or animals, then it stuffed itself in the den. I think that bat is really appropriate to Pluto.

And.... do you know the heart of Pluto?

Really? I didn't knew that fable, and I have book with lots of them. Do you know how it's called? :)

Also, yeah, I know about the heart of Pluto...but I made this before we knew about it. It makes me want to re-make this project one day, maybe :D

Okay, for the record I loved the whole series you did, but this one right here is just so darned cute! ^_^
I think Pluto should be considered a planet. Scientists discovered it has 5 moons (Charon, Nyx, Hydra, Styx, and Kerberos) - that teeny little not-planet has 4 moons on us! Come on scientists, give Pluto credit! :giggle:

What do you mean? You mean like what planet is for the zodiac sign?
If so, I think Virgo has Mercury and Libra Venus.

Pluto has it's place in our culture as a planet. But if it became a planet, we'd have to add several other objects to the list of planets.
