The BeastiaryIn this work I have chosen to represent 14 animals, seven as “gods” and seven as demon based on how they are used in human folklore and symbolism.

The pages fold into a triptych, the first page being having text that introduces the animal in their natural environment. The following two pages are meant t to represent the animal’s response to their place in human’s taxonomy.

This piece is made using gouache on watercolor paper. The first page measures 10 “x 7.5”, the opened second two pages measure 10” x 14”.

Text and images by Owen.
The piece is held in a private collection.
