In the pages of history and in the dense undergrowth of human memory, we see
glimpses of lurking fantastic beasts. Be honest-haven't you felt them around
you? Haven't you been surprised by movement in the corner of your vision? By
stirring shadows or a faint rustling in the dark?
The specimens in this exhibit of monsters from the Indian subcontinent have
been hand-picked from musty old encyclopaedias, murky urban legends, earthy
folk tales and the white-hot bowels of mythology. Some have been stuffed to
restore verisimilitude, but none were washed, painted or otherwise altered.
