> DESCRIPTION

While the term Chimera originally referred to a specific mythological fire breathing beast made up of a lion, a snake and a goat, it has come to be a more general term for hybrid creatures. While the name comes from Greek mythology it is a concept that appears across all human cultures. What is it about these strange, wondrous beasts and part-human part-animal beings that has so fascinated storytellers and artists over the centuries? This exhibit explore contemporary takes on this question.
