A little Zoo in Charles Darwin's Study

A little Zoo in Charles Darwin's Study 

Alfred Parsons' depiction of Charles Darwin's Study in Downe, drawn from a photo and engraved by J. Tynan, signed in August 1882, published in an article by Alfred R. Wallace in the Century Magazine (The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine), Volume 25, Nov. 1882 to April 1883. (Alfred Parsons' depiction of Charles Darwin's new study is used here with permission by Dr. John van Wyhe, darwin-online.org.uk/).

The little zoo, which Parsons (and Tynan) hid in his illustration, is highlighted by coloring the animals. Even when depicting real objects, artist can "play" with that reality.

But perhaps I also just fell victim to zoomorphism.

Crowquiller has particularly liked this photo
