"There is a quality that animals possess that has intrigued humans since our beginning.
With reverence they were painted and carved on cave walls. Through all ages and cultures they
have inhabited our dreams and mythologies. We see distilled in them all the powers and mysteries
of Nature and so have longed for a closer understanding and kinship with that mystery."
