Various Artists

    The animals whose planet we share have inspired artists and spectacular works of art for over 50,000 years. They remain a popular motif across a range of styles and in every media. Artists were invited to submit works in this theme to celebrate the creatures (‘great and small’) who enrich our lives or fascinate or intrigue us. As well as images of the many species of bird endemic to Aotearoa, creatures featuring in the exhibition include eels, chameleon, apes, lions, snakes and other less expected subjects.
