Sometimes changing your point of view is enough to give you a brand new outlook on something, and the world of art is certainly no exception. For example, portraying things from a high angle gives the viewer a unique sense of power and tension. It also gives the piece a greater sense of movement, which adds a sense of reality and helps immerse the viewer into the piece’s setting and story.
The wind whipping through Chihiro’s (from Spirited Away) hair as she rides Haku seems almost visible thanks to the high angle of the piece.
