Neues Bestiarium – New Bestiary

A bestiary is a collection of pictures and stories about animals. The appearance, behavior, and characteristics of the animals are depicted, described, and interpreted. Distinctions between real and imaginary animals are unimportant. 

The word bestiary is derived from the Latin word for beast, bestia. Bestiaries can include animals of all sorts, such as fish, zebras, lions, birds, dogs, seals, tigers, elephants, and others whose names are unknown. The Schlumper Gallery will soon be the home of a new bestiary.
