How Do You Feel About Art Above the TV?

1 | 2 | 3 | 4
My new TV stand is very low, leaving lots and lots of empty space above it. . . It needs filling, but I'm on the fence on how to fill it - one large piece, lots of small pieces, a faux deer head?  I just don't know.  I found the images above to use as inspiration, but I think they only confused me more. . .
So now I'm asking you -  how do you feel about  art above the TV?

This might sound weird, but I'm not a fan of art by the TV! At least, not for me with my current setup. A single piece of large art tends to be about the same size as the TV, and they compete and look weird together. And a lot of little things by the TV look busy and distracting. A single sculptural piece, like a faux deer head, would probably work.

I'd vote for that!

I was having the same thoughts about placing art above the TV, which is why I was at first looking for some sort of shelving unit.

I am going to buy the smalled faux deer head from Z Gallerie, my only fear is that it will seem dwarfed by all the space. While the wall is less than 40 inchs wide, the TV is low and there is about 5 feet above it.
