What do you get if you turn funny animal photos into humorous sculptures? Of course, delightful internet content.
Japanese artist Meetissai has been spreading joy with his weird animal sculptures for a while. We collected 30 of his recent masterpieces: get ready to burst out laughing!
Turning Photos To Funny Sculptures
Meetissai searches the web for weird, surprising animal moments. Then, the artist captures them forever into hilarious sculptures.
With nearly 220K followers on Twitter, Meetissai brings a smile to thousands of people each day. No matter how strange, the artist’s works never fail to make us laugh.
After all, we never get enough of dogs, cats, and other furry creatures doing funny things. Without them, the internet would not be the same wonderful space.
Why is Animal-related Content So Popular?
The web brims with forums and pages about animals. From the adorably cute to the hilariously funny, we all have our favorites.
When they do something that makes them look human, we cannot resist. Why is that?
According to scientists, the explanation is in our brains. When we see a squirrel photobombing, for example:
“Psychologically, the surprise appearance of this cute furry friend causes a cognitive orienting response.”
In other words: we see something unexpected, and it gets our attention. We need to explain it somehow, even if it is just a coincidence.
A Positive Psychological Response
Without even trying, the little rodent gave us a brief moment of joy. Our reaction, scientists say, comes from a sense of surprise:
“In the case of the squirrel, it’s a pleasant surprise, and the unexpected pleasure of seeing something funny when we were expecting something more mundane triggers a positive response (in this case smiling or even laughing).”
To get that same thrill again, we search the internet for similar images. Luckily, the web always delivers.
Now you know: next time you need a pick-me-up, science prescribes funny pets photos.
