There are many things in nature that influence our man-made creations. Everything from animals, plants and even the planets influence our design choices, colours and aesthetic preferences that can be seen in our lives and our homes.  If you have someone living in your home after filling in an occupier consent form through businesses like Sam Conveyancing they will have the beauty of seeing your creations in your home. I have always been drawn to elegance and grace and how this is replicated in our cultural entertainment choices, our music and even shown in our design and decoration choices.

Animals like Gazelles have a beautiful quality and appear to glide across the ground whilst they run and leap almost effortlessly.

Their beauty and grace are recreated on the stage with prima ballerinas and principal boys portraying equal grace and poise whilst performing. Similarly, to the Gazelles the dancers derive their power from their cores and leg muscles.

Whilst they are the one of the most graceful and beautiful animals in Africa, they also provide a ready source of food for Lions and other predators if they can actually catch them. The top speed of a Gazelle is 50 miles per hour and the top speed of a lion, when it can be bothered, is the same. The advantage that the Gazelle has is that it can change course in a split second. The leg muscles as mentioned above, enable it to run in all directions. However, if it separates from the herd, it has immediate problems. The safety of the herd is where the Gazelle can protect themselves as no Lion or predator would dare approach the group for fear of being trampled.  The Lion cannot make that turn but a cheetah can. The Cheetah is faster than the Gazelle and can match it. Nevertheless, its generally the weak and old or very young that are picked off by the predators.

Their horns are long and deadly sharp though this is not to be used against predators. They are used more to claim dominance over other Gazelles and ascertain which is the head of the herd. This is important as it drives the Gazelles to where they need to be. This is also where the predators will look to attack. As the Gazelles approach the watering holes they are subject to attacks or maneuvers that try to split away the weak and old as we mentioned before. They will not be with the herd by the end of it.

The Gazelle is as every part of the fabric of the African plains and long may they do so.
