Among the art who has managed to capture the human emotions is Beth Cavener.She does so not by using human forms for prsenting the expressions, but by turning to other species. Some of her most famous clay sculptures feature cats and rabbits, deer and goats, etc. She shows the human emotions without presenting human beings.
