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.
