Avatars are social communication icons borrowed from literature and culture that people use on the World Wide Web to express ideas in a private and discreet fashion.

The Hollywood (USA) movie "Avatar" (2009) presents this technology in 3D, suggesting that such presentation can represent humanity's curiosity about self-visualization art coordination.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!

If you've ever seen or heard of the game second life you can easily see how many people on a daily basis iconic themselves in their avatars.

Your character, or avatar, can look like anything, be anything, do anything possible within the virtual world.
