Many oriental paintings depict animals in motion—horses running, fish swimming, or birds flying. These often symbolize wealth, fame, and success.

For a modern feel, replace these old-fashioned paintings with interesting figurines that also have a sense of movement! These will look great on tabletops, on bookshelves, or even on walls.
