Wolf Girls & Foxy Ladies

Kiki SmithWolf Girl

Sebastiano recently gave me for my birthday the beautiful catalog
of the 2005 Mart exhibition Il Bello e le bestie (Beauty and the beasts).
The volume displays a varied collection of art exploring the contamination 
of human and animal forms in imagery ranging from early mythical monsters 
to contemporary social satire. A fascinating selection, including the stunning 
Daniel Lee photograph below, which has inspired me to restore to life 
Animalarium's long-dormant homage to woman-animal hybrids 
with this proud pack of wintery creatures.
