GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Craft, Design & Culture

ANIMALS AND BIRDS
Exploring the intricate relationship between human beings and the animal world.



This set highlights the diverse ways in which artists, craftspeople and designers have depicted natural history. The richness of imagery seen here reflects the importance to human beings of other living creatures. In fact, contemporary concern for the welfare of wildlife has for the first time made ‘animal rights’ a lively topic of political debate.
Mythical, extinct and living species have always engaged the human imagination. Curiosity about them has generated much scientific research and they have triggered countless sporting and leisure activities. They can provoke emotions that range from wonder, gratitude and love to greed, fear and grief and play a part in religious beliefs and rituals, as well as oral and written literature. Both real and imaginary creatures inspire the shape and decoration of ceremonial and domestic objects.
