Train of thought/Gedankengang

So I was brushing my teeth last night and was wearing this t-shirt with a dogs head on a human body, which concept wise is the same idea as in the pictures I posted below from the shop window and I got to thinking if the designer had been to Spain (where I bought it) and seen the same t-shirt. However, I then realised I had seen the same Idea many years earlier in Sumerian (around 5000bc) and Egyptian depictions of their gods.

As a designer you are always striving to do something new, but I think it was Sun Ra (who probabally took the saying from somewhere else) who said there is nothing new under the sun. I guess the best you can strive for are fresh reinterpretations, or reintroductions.
