‘Pasche Bestiarum’ – a symbolic visual narrative celebrating Easter

This delightful exhibition is aimed at celebrating Easter.
This bestiary illustrates the symbolic eyewitness account of animals, insects and plants present during the life journey of Christ and inspired by medieval bestiary tradition to use symbolism and allegory to impart moral lessons with illustrations of animals.

The allusive symbolism of animals mentioned in the Bible is used in an unconventional approach to illustrate the narrative of this liturgical period.

The exhibition will be opened on Sunday 15 March 2020 at 11h30 by
Samuel Isaacs
Co-owner of Longstreet Art Lovers and chairperson of the Association of Arts Pretoria

The exhibition will conclude on 22 April 2020
