ABSTRACT
The article discusses the emotional responses that humans have to sharks, including fear and awe, and the negative artistic portrayals of sharks in visual media. It goes on to discuss the psychological change in public opinion that has occurred from humans being the victims of sharks to humans being their killers. It further notes that the consumption of shark products for food and medicinal purposes in China is ingrained in its culture and, as of April, 2012, is still very popular, making it a threat to endangered shark species. It also makes note of the art exhibit “Shark” at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
