In early cultures, imagination and reality were not separated in the way that is habitual to the modern mind. Instead, they represented two equally valid dimensions of existence, the inner and outer worlds.

"The idea of the menagerie where wild animals are held captive for display purposes continues to interest me," says Nikky Morgan-Smith. "In a primal way, every animal manifests a facet of human emotion".
