Animal Kingdown

Since the beginning of time artists have created animals with rich symbolic associations and human and mythical characteristics – we can see this as far back as Egyptian tomb-painting and medieval illustrations. Contemporary artists are no different: here we examine the human bond with the natural world and explore the way we try to organise and command the animal kingdom.
