Animals have been on the planet much longer than human beings and have always been an integral part of our lives. They appear in some of the earliest art in the world; they take the form of deities and serve as stand-ins for us; they can be friends and allies or wild and dangerous. All of these roles will be explored through images of creatures from around the world represented in a variety of media.
